The cast of the Grey's Anatomy spin-off starring Kate Walsh and Taye Diggs is really clicking, Diggs tells People.

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.

I think the writers have strayed away from the good, intense writing of the original Grey's Anatomy. For example, the story line between Burke and Cristina, that has been dragged on TOO LONG. they are my favorite couple, but come on, just get them married..why bother bring in Colin Marlow, a half dead old fart????? I would really like to see Shonda brings in current event in her writing. I want to see a story line about Iraq....how it affects the lives of ordinary Americans...how it affects the doctors medically, and their responsibilities in society as medical professionals..

Here's Kate Walsh in LA filming a scene of Grey's, most probably spin-off related.

I can agree with you susy - that being that Addison isn't one of the originals. But, saying that we don't need her, I'm not so certain. She - without realizing it - brought Meredith and Derek together and then she has been somewhat of a peace keeper to everyone at the hospital. The thing I love about her though is that she never denied, or tried to say that she didn't cheat on Derek. I think deep down she is a good person and she will be missed at SGH!

Addison isn't an original. GA will be better without her. If the spinoff will be a flop, it will be a failure for KW. EP wasn't popular when GA aired and now GA is the best TV show ever.

At first, I was weirded out about the spin off thing. Now, I can't wait! I seen a poll that said 85% dont like the spin off idea, but 68% of them will still watch it. LOVE! Thanks for the pics, I favorited them! ;) By the way:

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

[narrating] The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands.
