Also boarding the still-untitled Shondaland drama: Jay Hayden (a veteran of another Shonda Rhimes-produced drama, ABC’s The Catch), Okieriete Onaodowan (Broadway’s Hamilton), Danielle Savre (Too Close To Home) and Barrett Doss (Marvel’s Iron Fist). The quintet join the previously cast Jaina Lee Ortiz (Rosewood) and Jason George (who will be playing his Grey’s Anatomy character, Ben).
The 10-episode series revolves around the brave Seattle firefighters who risk their lives and their hearts both in the line of duty and off the clock. The lead characters will be introduced in an episode of Grey‘s Anatomy later this fall ahead of the spinoff’s launch at midseason. Longtime Grey’s EP Stacy McKee will serve as showrunner.
