Kate Walsh (Addison) of Grey's Anatomy set to get her own show

Kate Walsh A.K.A Addison of Grey's Anatomy is getting her own show. A greys anatomy spin off. Personally I think this is a stupid idea because A. You don't have a spin off of a show that is still on T.V. B. Everyone has grown to love her on Grey's, and I'm not too sure her show will do to well, but I guess we will see. Don't get me wrong I love Addison, shes one of my favorite characters, I just think its a bad idea.

"It looks like “Grey’s Anatomy” is about to go under the knife to cut out one of its stars… and breathe easy, Ellen Pompeo fans, it’s got nothing to do with the recent fiery ferry crash.

ABC has decided to pursue a “Grey’s” spin-off with sexy neonatal surgeon Dr. Addison Montgomery-Shepherd (played by the lovely Kate Walsh) as the lead character, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal.

The pilot has yet to be finalized and “Grey’s” creator Shonda Rhimes has yet to decide on a title.

However, Rhimes recently filled the cast in on the idea and revealed she will write a special two-hour episode to serve as the pilot, with a likely debut in May, according to the report.Walsh joined the “Grey’s” cast in May 2005, appearing towards the end of the season one finale.

When contacted by Access Hollywood, ABC had no further comment beyond what was in the Wall Street Journal article.

In order to focus on the project, Rhimes has reportedly back-burnered “Correspondents,” another pilot she was working on starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played Katherine Heigl’s patient love interest Denny Duquette."

Also Taye Diggs has been tapped to star in the Grey's Anatomy spin-off currently in the works. No details are available on his character. Grey's will set the stage for the spin-off via an expanded two-hour episode scheduled to air in May in which Dr. Shepherd will consider an exit from Seattle Grace. Grey's writer and creator Shonda Rhimes is writing the episode and is expected to write the potential spin-off as well.
