Writer-producer Jill Soloway, who since Six Feet Under's demise has been working on features, has inked deals to develop a one-hour comedy project with J.J. Abrams and join Grey's Anatomy as a consulting producer. Per the Reporter, should the Abrams project go to pilot, Soloway will focus on it full-time; if not, she will continue on at Grey's as a co-executive producer. "I feel like the luckiest person in the world," Soloway tells the trade. "I've loved [Abrams] since Felicity" - this even though she was rumored to be Team Noel.
