They will both appear in episodes 3.22 and 3.23 of Grey's. These episodes will serve as the pilot for this potential spin-off revolving around Kate Walsh's character, Addison.

Episode 3.22 and 3.23 are set to air on May 10 on ABC.

I'm very excited about a spin-off from Grey's. I think the new cast is going to be a great ensemble. If it is in the right time slot, it should be a hit. I really miss the cast from Alias, so I'm glad to see someone from that great show. Good luck, Kate and the rest!!! I'll be watching and so will my daughter and her financee'.

I'm not at all interested in the Grey's spin off unless Patrick Dempsey is in it. He's the main reason I watch Grey's anatomy every Thursday, and Friday night.

Kassy: Chris being in the two-hour spin off doesn't mean he'll be regular cast. It just means he is in the two-hour special. He could play a patient for all we know right now.

NO! NO! I think i am the only one that is tried of hearing news of this show, and then to learnt that Chris Lowell from my beloved Veronica Mars will be on the 2 hour spin off special...just upsets me. I kept hearing rumors about him leaving VM. UGH!

So far, I love all the new casts...Merrin Dungey, Chris Lowell, Taye Diggs, that prison break dude, and Tim Daly!!
With Grey's quality on a steep decline and the whole backstage drama, i'm actually very excited about this spin-off for Kate Walsh (she totally deserve more screen time) so i can drop Grey's from my Tivo.

This is far and away the best-cast pilot that has been announced so far, and ABC is going to put buzz machine behind it in a big way if it goes forward.

We're still in the reality distortion field phase of pilot season so, yeah, it looks like a hit.

Yeah Totally! I can't wait to see another show with Addison on it...she is HOT! But you know who is really HOT??? Kelly Hu...pronounced like "WHO". She should change her name to Kelly Hot...that would be rad. I can't wait for the next episode of "In Case of Emergency"!

Nope. Not at all tired of Grey's. And I'm actually looking forward to the spinoff. Addison is actually one of my favorite characters on the show. And I'm liking the fact that we get an ex-Alias actor in the show too.

Love "Grey's," and Addison is a great character, but I'm not interested to a show devoted to her perspective. Although ABC does surprise me...I thought their mid-season comedies looked dull, and now "In Case of Emergency" (Wednesdays @ 9:30pm) is not only the funniest thing on Wednesdays, its one of my favs.
