Update: Yet More about "Grey's" Junior

Update: Yet More about "Grey's" Junior

My hopes that the "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff is actually an elaborate hoax just took another hit, because apparently the project now has a working title: "Private Practice." [Insert groan here.] Executives used the tentative name during a program development meeting last week, when they brought in the spinoff's cast to talk to media buyers. They also revealed when the two-hour episode I like to think of as "A Very Special 'Grey's'" will air: May 10.

Update: The Los Angeles Times has even more details about the spinoff. According to their story:

Following her recent disastrous romantic misfortunes, Addison (Kate Walsh) travels to Santa Monica to seek advice from her old medical school pals, Naomi (Merrin Dungey) and Jackson (Taye Diggs) whom she believes have it all: a beautiful teenage daughter, a great marriage and a highly successful health cooperative.

Addison quickly learns that Jackson, also a successful TV health guru, has divorced Naomi. During the visit, Addison also meets the rest of the gang at the cooperative: a widowed alternative medicine doctor, a self-doubting therapist, and a male gynecologist who knows little about women, and realizes she is on familiar ground.

So, to recap what else we (might) know about the (possible) spinoff:

Given the quality of regular "Grey's" recently, does anyone else think Shonda & co. might have enough on their plates with just one show?

Even if Taye Diggs is a show killer he's pretty damn hot haha omg remember "kevin hill" on the network that used to be UPN? that lasted like what, a month? i dunno anyway even though i dont think its a good idea im still not gonna rule it out, because addison's might even be a bigger hit than grey's..dare i say it.. I agree that Meredith is becoming really whiny and when i first started watching the show, I disliked Meredith the most. My favorites are Bailey and Mark.. and sometimes Christina..oh and Derek. I like Addison, even though she sometimes wears too much makeup in the show.

The spin off sounds as though it will be thinner on plot and heavier on humor than Grey's. Kate Walsh is strong, but I'm not sure she's going to be able to carry the show by herself and the rest of the cast looks weak. But, I know I'll give it a chance.

This a whole cast of show killers. Unfortunately I think the casting is going to kill this project before it gets off the ground. Too bad.

I wish they would move more cast over too, like Mark and Alex Karev. Will she still make guest appearances on Grey's? I have mixed feelings about Taye Diggs, but I think he did good on Ally McBeal, so I would give him a chance.

I'm really worried about this. Taye Diggs is the show killer. Let her have fling with him, then he should leave. Every show he's been on has died. Style Before Comfort!

I'm slightly skeptical, but I'm definitely going to give it a chance. I mean, what else am I going to watch. Project Runway doesn't start for a while!

Yikes, I don't think the spinoff sounds good at all

I think that this new spin-off could be a fresh start for them to go back and create the show that Grey's was supposed to be. Addison Shephard is not whiney, so they've already got one thing going for them!

Grey's is already starting to grate my nerves as is. If they do a spin-off and its horrible, I will probably not watch either of the shows. And, I say this realizing this means a shortage of McSteamy and Dr. Alex Karev...

It really depends on where they take this as to whether or not it is good....it has definite potential though...

I really don't like the idea of greys having a spin off while its still doing soo well... let me rephrase that since it was doing soo Good and shonda had to go mess it up by having izzie and george sleep together.. i am sooo sorry i don't buy it, they never had any chemistry or flirtation btw EVER!! And they just throw it at us like we are supposed to accept it!! I am just pissed!!! Anyways, back to the spin off... why? why? seems like a case of greediness to me!!

I worry that both shows will be weakened, but Kate Walsh is awesome and I'm willing to give the spin-off a chance--and hope that Grey's stays on track now; the last few episodes have been stronger after the ferry boat disaster.

I think the show could be good. I used to hate Addison, but have really grown to love her and Kate Walsh recently. However, I do not like Taye Diggs, and if he is the lead male on the show, I probably will tune out.
