'Grey's Anatomy' Firefighter Spinoff Will Have 'So Much More Action'

Think a lot happens at the hospital on "Grey's Anatomy"? Wait 'til you see the drama's upcoming firefighter spinoff.

Shonda Rhimes and Shondaland have been prepping the spinoff since it was announced earlier this year. The pilot has been shot, showrunner Stacy McKee told Entertainment Weekly. And for all of the disasters that befall Seattle in "Grey's," now fans will get an up-close look.

"We get to go to the accident, we get to run into the fire. There's just this opportunity for so much more action, stunts and big set pieces like that, which is really, really fun," she said.

"And a firefighter shift is literally 24 hours long, so you have these characters who are both working together — saving lives together and saving each other's lives together — and living together for a minimum of 24 hours at a time, so they're all up in each other's business. Plus, we get to ride on firetrucks, which is everybody's dream. I mean, don't you want to ride a firetruck? It's the best!"

ABC's spinoff, which doesn't have a title yet (on set, they jokingly call it "Blaze Anatomy"), will feature a new cast, except for one crossover from the original series...
