Great Chemistry on Set of Grey's Anatomy Spin-Off, Reports Taye Diggs
"They're great. We have really great chemistry," said Diggs of his fellow cast members Thursday at the opening of the new club Runway, in New York City.

The initial two-hour episode of Greys Anatomy, which is expected to start the spin-off series and is titled "The Other Side of This Life" (Parts I & II), has just finished filming, according to Diggs.

"We're hoping people dig it," Diggs said.

ABC plans to test out the show with a "back-door pilot," an expanded two-hour episode of Grey's Anatomy, USA Today reported in February.

The air date for the episode has not been set by ABC, officially, although sources tell us it will be May 3.

Taye Diggs, who said he plays a "general practitioner" on the show (rumored to be called Private Practice), was expectedly coy when asked if he could reveal any key plot details of the spin-off.

"Plot what? Secrets?" he said. "I can't tell you! It's a secret."

Grey's Anatomy creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes is writing the first episode, which, according to several accounts, will feature Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh), mulling an out-of-town job offer.
