Grey’s Anatomy Star Chyler Leigh Joins NBC Pilot Holding Patterns
Former Grey’s Anatomy star Chyler Leigh landed herself a new gig on NBC, reports THR. The actress scored a leading role on the comedy pilot Holding Patterns -- and you won’t believe who she’ll be playing. Holding Patterns follows a group of friends whose lives are altered after surviving a plane crash, which is ironic considering Chyler’s Grey’s Anatomy character, Lexie Grey, died from the result of one. Chyler will play Leah, an irresponsible, albeit funny and intelligent, slacker who lives with her two best friends in a Minneapolis duplex. Sounds nothing like Little Grey -- Lexie Grey, a slacker?! -- but we’ll still watch. The Office’s Justin Spitzer wrote and executive produced the pilot. Sounds promising!
