Patrick Dempsey is running for public office. On TV, that is.
The one-time Dr Derek ‘McDreamy’ Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy is making his return to TV in a drama pilot called Ways and Means.
According to Variety, the series “centres on a powerful congressional leader (Dempsey) who has lost faith in politics who finds himself working secretly with an idealistic young congresswoman from the opposing party to subvert the hopelessly gridlocked system he helped create; together, they’ll attempt to save American politics — if they don’t caught.”
Dempsey will not only star in it but also serve as executive producer on the CBS series. After 11 seasons on Grey’s Anatomy, Dempsey, 54, went on to star in Bridget Jones’ Baby and the Epix mini-series The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair
Hmmm, wonder what nickname Dempsey’s character will get on Ways and Means. McScruples?
