Great Chemistry on Set of Grey's Anatomy Spin-Off, Reports Taye Diggs

by at . Comments

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 will miss Addison! I have only one question... Why so soon??? I don't get the need to do a spinoff so quickly! I'll give it a try though... although, i still say you cannot get better than Grey's-the-origional-Anatomy!

I agree with Calliope. Derek loves Meredith with or without Addison in the show.
I think her fans will be happy to see her like a lead actress.
Goodbye Addison!

Meredith and Derek are a (happy, sad or other) couple with or without Addison. ABC wrote a spinoff for her because she was in the show only for the triangle and then she lost the focus.

Yeah, I agree with Burke. Addison leaving Seattle will just result in Meredith and Derek being a Happy couple. NO MORE DRAMA IN MY LIFE. XD (That's such a lie. Addison is like the guru of relationships!) Like most of the people, I'm STILL Skeptical. But I'll give it a try. May 3rd, two hours...!

I wish them all great success and really hope that this new show will not dilute the original. I will miss Addison in Seattle.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

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.
