Grey’s Anatomy Spinoff Gets a Name, Sort of

After the bit-by-bit disclosure of the cast of the upcoming spin off of Grey’s Anatomy, a title finally surfaces for the much talked about series…at least for now. The show, which features the lead character Dr. Addision Montgomery, played by actress Kate Walsh, will be momentarily called “Private Practice.”

Grey’s Anatomy, an Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama series, features the world of medical drama through the eyes of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo. The show also includes Sandra Oh, Katherine Heigl, Justin Chambers, T.R. Knight, Patrick Dempsey, Isaiah Washington and, of course, Kate Walsh.

A month ago, the buzz about a Grey’s Anatomy spin off surfaced various media outlets. Due to its attractiveness and popularity, the network has decided to come up with a by-product of the highly controversial medical drama that would center on Kate Walsh’s character. Weeks after the reports, the spin-off was confirmed however other details were left out including the other cast members, not to mention the title of the show.

The highly publicized Grey’s Anatomy spin off is creating buzz with its stand-alone and detached idea. In line with this, the said show is said to deviate from a sphere of medical emergencies and leap into a more profound drama viewers will hopefully be pleased about.

With the gradual uncovering of the details of the controversial show, the viewers are getting more curious and intrigued about the spin off. And with all the noise about the upcoming show, the ABC network highly expects the series to instantly land a niche on the top in the network’s fall line up.

Apart from Walsh, it is now confirmed that the Grey’s Anatomy spin off will also include Taye Diggs, Tim Daly, Paul Adelstein, Chris Lowell, Amy Brenneman and Merrin Dungey. The drama is set to launch on May 10, 2007 with a two-hour special debut. But as of this moment, there is still no word on the airtime.
