New Shonda Rhimes Series On Hold
Filming on the new pilot from Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes (right) has been put off until the end of this year or early next year, says Grey's executive producer Peter Horton.

Horton, who is slated to work on the new project alongside Rhimes, is quoted in the New York Post saying that the upcoming pilot would have a similar feel to Grey's Anatomy, but in the world of broadcast journalism.

"That's a nut that TV has been trying to crack for quite a long time. If anyone can do it, it's Shonda. She has a really good sensibility for these different worlds that could be compatible with a mass audience," Horton said.

Once her the project, which will reportedly include memorable Grey's guest star Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Denny Duquette) in its cast, kicks into gear, Rhimes will be splitting her duties between that and Grey's.

"That's one of the challenges. She'd have to do both [shows], because every script has to eventually go through her typewriter. She's got a lot more help this year on Grey's... which is allowing Shonda the freedom to do [the pilot]. So, yes, she'll be in volved in both shows," Horton said.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
