Producers Explain Why They're Having Issues Naming 'Grey's Anatomy' Spinoff

Queen of ABC Primetime, Ms. Shonda Rhimes is readying another show for her already packed roster. This time she is going back to the beginning in a way. The original Shondaland centerpiece, Grey's Anatomy is getting another spin-off.   

After the success of Grey's, which is in it's 14th season and it's first successful spin-off, Private Practice, it looks like ABC can't get enough of the Seattle Grace world. This new show will focus on the firefighters realm. So now we go from sexy doctors to sexy firefighters! 

There is a hitch still. The new fiery debut is a couple months off and ABC has yet to name the project. 

As reported by, network execs told media outlets they’ve been stalled at figuring out the sexy fire-fighter show's title due in large part to NBC’s sexy fire-fighter show Chicago Fire.

ABC President Channing Dungey said :

“The truth of the matter is coming up with a title is one of the most challenging things we do. We’ve gone through a number of different options and ideas. We want to make sure what we stick on it is the perfect piece.”

When asked about the comparison to Chicago Fire Dungey responded :

“That would be the main reason we’re not going to call it Seattle Fire.” 

Twitter had some thoughts on the matter. 

Hmm, simple and to the point. 

Sexy with mystery. 

That title is a little too close to another drama. 

Execs say they aren't worried. They told reporters :

“We would like to know in the next couple weeks. We have a few final ideas that we’re rolling around.”

The countdown to March is fast approaching and it's getting hot in here!
