About Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice Wiki
Welcome to the Grey's Anatomy Wiki! You are welcome to contribute to our growing wiki and help create a website that is aimed at being a place of factual information about the series.
Grey's Anatomy is a medical drama that is broadcast on ABC. It is about to enter the fourteenth season, airing every Thursday 8/7c on ABC. The series, originally named Complications, is centred around the lives of interns, residents and attendings at the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, while they navigate their personal lives and relationships.
The name is a play on Gray's Anatomy, a human anatomy textbook by Henry Gray, and the surname of Meredith Grey, the main character who delivers her thoughts on pivotal findings in life, as she starts to learn that not everything in life is simple - that the hard choices about medicine, love and life come in shades of grey.
Private Practice was the spin-off of Grey's Anatomy that aired from 2007 until 2013. It portrayed the life of Addison Forbes Montgomery when she departed Grey Sloan for Seaside Wellness Center in Los Angeles, and delved into the lives of her colleagues and patients too. The show featured guest star appearances from characters of the original show, such as Derek Shepherd.
