Audra McDonaldIt's been announced that Audra McDonald is leaving 'Private Practice' in what's said to be an "amicable" split.

McDonald is quitting the 'Grey's Anatomy' spin-off in order to spend more time with her family in New York, and she'll leave at the end of the current season. However, from what she and series creator Shonda Rhimes have said about her departure, it seems likely that she'll be back for guest spots in Season 5.

In an interview with TVLine.com, McDonald said "I have spent four amazing years working with the best cast and crew on television at 'Private Practice'. ... Though I am stepping away from the series as a regular in order to spend more time in New York with my family, I am not closing the door on 'Private Practice' or the character ... I am beyond grateful to Shonda Rhimes, ABC and the team behind the show."

Arrested DevelopmentCould the mythical 'Arrested Development' movie get off the ground and make it to a theater near you this year? That's what creator Mitch Hurwitz seems to think.
