New York Post – Even “Grey’s Anatomy” can’t escape the coronavirus.
Season 17 of the medical drama will feature the COVID-19 pandemic as a plot point, says executive producer Krista Vernoff. The show’s writers are even meeting with real-life doctors who have been on the front lines of combating the virus in order to have accuracy.
“There’s no way to be a long-running medical show and not do the medical story of our lifetime. We’re going to address this pandemic, for sure,” she said on a recent panel that will stream at 8 p.m. on Emmys.com, according to Entertainment Weekly.
