According toDeadline Hollywood, the Grey's Anatomy star has started her own production company, Calamity Jane, and she's already sold her first project to ABC. It's an as-yet-untitled show written by Mike Sussman (from TNT's Perception), about special agents who travel the world to protect US officials.
That definitely sounds like it could make for a fun show — Alias meets West Wing — but this news makes us wonder if Ellen will want to return to Grey'safter her contract is up at the end of Season 8. It seems like she'll have plenty of other things on her plate. Say it isn't so!
