ABC is banking on its Grey’s Anatomy empire for another series. They just gave a straight to series order to a spinoff set in a Seattle firehouse. The new untitled series will be run by Stacy McKee, Grey’s Anatomy‘s current showrunner. Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will executive produce the show along with McKee. ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said,
“No one can interweave the jeopardy firefighters face in the line of duty with the drama in their personal lives quite like Shonda, and ‘Grey’s’ signature Seattle setting is the perfect backdrop for this exciting spinoff.”
The show will launch as a planted spinoff that will air as part of an episode of Grey’s this fall.
