The actress who portrays Dr. Bailey will both be starring and directing an episode of sixth season this Fall.
A leading lady of "Grey's Anatomy" gets the promotion. Chandra Wilson aka Dr. Miranda Bailey is going to direct an episode of the medical drama this season although details surrounding this are still scarce. Wilson's directorial debut will mark the first time a star of the series takes charge behind the lens.
Creator Shonda Rhimes confirmed on her Twitter that the production of sixth season will begin next week. Meanwhile, E! Online is spilling a scoop that actually there was another actor who negotiated to direct an episode. This unnamed actor also wanted a more creative and personal freedom in the show which will alter his or her contract.
In another "Grey's Anatomy" news round-up, Ellen Pompeo is expected to continue her work as Meredith despite her pregnancy. The actress who is due this fall reportedly will not get a baby break because, according to E!, ABC did not want Rachel Griffiths to take a leave from "Brothers & Sisters" after giving birth, so it may demand the same thing from Pompeo.
The sixth season kicks off September 24. Now that Disney (which owns ABC) is officially in partnership with Hulu, fans of the show can watch the five most recent aired episodes of the popular drama show online.
