Exclusive: Shonda Rhimes Reveals Grey's Anatomy Musical Details

Grey's Anatomy

Grey's Anatomy is doing a musical episode.

The ABC medical drama is planning the event for later this season, but don't expect the doctors of Seattle Grace to just burst into song and start dancing down the hospital halls, executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells TVGuide.com exclusively.

Rhimes says the Grey's musical episode will be very different from other shows that have attempted the stunt in the past. She specifically references Buffy the Vampire Slayer's musical episode, which she says is one of her favorites. "[Ours] is sort of the opposite of that in a weird way," Rhimes says. "They did an all-out, show-stopping, Broadway kind of musical. This is very different."

Mega Buzz: A Bones Epiphany, Housewives' Dallas Homage and Castle Mommy Issues

Bones, Desperate Housewives, Castle

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

When is Brennan finally going to wake up and see what she's missing with Booth on Bones? — Sara
ADAM:
Sooner than you think. In the midseason finale, Brennan investigates the murder of a workaholic, and Bones quickly draws parallels to her own life. "She's forced to face feelings that she's never had to deal with before," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She confronts the fact that this woman was running her whole life from feeling anything and she has to confront whether she's going to run her whole life from feeling anything. It butts right up against her relationship with Booth and the past five years of history."

I'm so excited about Episode 10 of Desperate Housewives. Please give me some hints about it. — Dean
MICKEY:
TNT may have people buzzing about Dallas again, but it's Desperate Housewives that will pay homage to the classic soap by asking: read more

Weeds Finale Post-Mortem: Creator Jenji Kohan Says Show May End After Next Season

Weeds

Smoke 'em if you got 'em, because Weeds may not be around much longer.

In Monday's sixth season finale, Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) sacrificed herself by claiming responsibility for the murder of Pilar. She was last seen surrounded by FBI agents at the airport, while her family was on a plane headed for Europe. Once again, it looks like Nancy's out of options. Or is she? Will we next see her plotting a season-long jail break? Series creator Jenji Kohan says getting stuck in major jams is certainly nothing new for Nancy.

Creator Jenji Kohan on Weeds' finale: "It's the end of a journey"

"We always tend to write ourselves into a corner to a certain extent," she says. "Everyone goes home, rests and comes back fresh and says, 'All right, how are we going to get out of this sh--? What have we done?' There were vague discussions of what's going to happen next year, but there's nothing definitive in the works yet."

Kohan talks to TVGuide.com about Monday's cliff-hanger, why the upcoming seventh season may be the last, and whether Nancy will be wearing an orange jumpsuit when the show returns... read more

On the Set: Private Practice Prepares for the Aftermath of Charlotte's Attack

Private Practice

"It's not anything that the audience can't handle," KaDee Strickland stresses as she sits in the living room of Sam's beachfront house on the Private Practice set during one of the few days she's not covered in prosthetic cuts, scrapes and bruises.

The "it" in this situation is her character Charlotte's sexual assault and brutal beating in this Thursday's episode of Private Practice (10/9c on ABC).

Private Practice tackles rape during sweeps

At the end of last week's episode, Charlotte walked out of her office at the hospital only to encounter a deranged man whose face the audience has yet to see (though we know he's played by Buffy alum Nicholas Brendon). After a harsh smack, he shoved her back into the dark office as the episode faded to black.

"The fact that she has this happen in her place of business is a very powerful statement because she has to go back to it," Strickland says. "It will never be the same thing to... read more
