Earlier this month, it was reported that two doctors from Grey’s Anatomy had been asked to turn in their pretend ID badges and leave Grey-Sloan Memorial. Jessica Capshaw (Dr. Arizona Robbins) and Sarah Drew (Dr. April Kepner) didn’t get their contracts renewed, and Deadline heavily implied it might have been because ABC was running low on money after giving $20 million to Ellen Pompeo. A very pissed Ellen shot back, saying there was absolutely no truth to it. Ellen appeared on Ellen today, and reiterated her raise isn’t the reason why Jessica and Sarah were let go.
I don’t think Sarah Drew’s going to be spending any time crying over spilled lactated ringers. Days after getting the axe from Grey’s Anatomy, Sarah’s just landed a lead role as a cop named Cagney. Yes, that Cagney. According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS is making a pilot for a rebooted Cagney & Lacey because, who’s gonna stop them?
