[via press release from ABC]


Future Podcasts Will Be Available on Both ABC.com and Apple�s iTunes; Blogs Also Available on ABC.com

The ABC Television Network will be launching the first official �Grey�s Anatomy� podcast series on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3. The podcasts will be available on ABC.com and iTunes Music Store.

Each week, various �Grey�s Anatomy� cast members join producers for one-on-one conversations that will tease the week�s upcoming episode, as well as give insight into the actors and their characters.

On Friday, February 3, the first podcast will feature Kate Walsh (Addison Shepherd) and executive producer Jim Parriott providing insights into Kate�s on-screen character, as well as discussing the upcoming post-Superbowl episode, �It�s the End of the World� (airing on Sunday, February 5).

The �Grey�s Anatomy� podcasts will be available for download on the official �Grey�s Anatomy� website at ABC.com and on Apple�s iTunes. Users will be able to download the podcasts on both sites at no cost. Podcasts will remain available on each site for an unspecified time.

A podcast is the distribution of audio files for download. You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or from a portable media player.

On this Sunday�s episode, �It�s The End of the World� (airing 10:00-11:00 p.m. approx., ET), Meredith�s fear that she is in for a bad day is realized when a medical case arrives at Seattle Grace Hospital that threatens the lives of everyone in the OR.

In addition to the podcast series, �Grey�s Anatomy� fans can also find blogs tied to the series on ABC.com. The Writer�s Blog (http://www.greyswriters.com/) offers fans behind-the-scenes insight into the most recent episode. Penned by the writer or writers of that episode, the blogs offer observations not available from any other source, including inspiration for story ideas and the deeper meaning of the episode.

Two fictional blogs offer viewers an expanded perspective of the show from the viewpoint of characters not central to the storyline -- Nurses� Blog and Joe�s Blog.

Nurses� Blog (www.seattlegracegossip.com), as the name implies, is the opportunity for Seattle Grace�s nursing staff to weigh in on hospital events. They might be commenting on recent cases or gossiping about the casual trysts or complicated relationships certain members of the staff are engaged in.

Joe�s Blog (www.emeraldcitybar.com) is the place where Joe, the bartender at the doctors� hangout, can wax on about his secret fantasies, comment on what his patrons are up to, and gossip about what he sees and overhears from his unique vantage point.

In addition, the �Grey�s� site on ABC.com offers Grey�s Music Casts, streaming audio of various �Grey�s� staff members talking about the music that was used in the episode, with extended clips of the songs.

�Grey�s Anatomy� stars Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey, Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd, Sandra Oh as Cristina Yang, Isaiah Washington as Preston Burke, Katherine Heigl as Isobel �Izzie� Stevens, Justin Chambers as Alex Karev, T.R. Knight as George O�Malley, Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, James Pickens, Jr. as Richard Webber and Kate Walsh as Addison Shepherd.

�Grey�s Anatomy� is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC�s selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning.
