Grey's Anatomy

Leaving the stress of his onscreen marriage behind, Grey's Anatomy's Kevin McKidd (Owen) is trying on a director's hat for a series of six Grey's webisodes to air on abc.com beginning October 14.

Or should we say Webbersodes? "They're based around a new PR consultant's power struggle with Dr. Richard Webber [James Pickens, Jr.], who is trying to turn the image of the hospital around," explains McKidd. When the PR rep advises the hospital to produce a corporate sizzle reel, they search for the perfect on-camera representative "with disastrous results," says McKidd, who will pop up in the series along with Pickens, Jesse Williams (Jackson) and Sarah Drew (April). "I ended up directing two I'm in, which was a challenge and quite weird."

Also a challenge for Owen is Cristina's worsening PTSD, which will require him to take care of her before the storyline comes to a head in the November 11 episode. "It's going to intensify, and he'll do everything he can to get her back."
