George Clooney Hires Grey’s Anatomy Writer Debora Cahn to Script Film Coronado High

Does George Clooney love Grey's Anatomy? He may, considering he and his producing partners just tapped Grey's writer-producer Debora Cahn to write a screenplay for them!

Debora joined Grey's at the start of Season 3 as a producer and stayed on until the end of Season 10. She has written 16 episodes of the series — of which our favorites are "Now or Never," the Season 5 finale which saw George (T.R. Knight) die, and "Dark Was the Night," the Season 8 episode in which Cristina (Sandra Oh) doesn't realize her dead cardio patient is Henry (Scott Foley) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex (Justin Chambers) are involved in an ambulance wreck.

Now, per The Hollywood Reporter, Debora will write the script to Coronado High, a true-life story of a teacher at a California high school who teamed up with his students in 1969 to devise a system of smuggling marijuana from Mexico via surfboards.


The subject was previously covered in an article by journalist Joshua Bearman, the same guy who wrote the article that inspired Argo, which George also produced.

This creative partnership is especially coincidental since Grey's Anatomy Season 10 cast member Tessa Ferrer (Leah Murphy) is George Clooney's cousin.

Maybe Deb and Tessa can convince him to make an appearance on a certain non-ER medical drama?
