McPherson: Heigl staying with 'Grey's'

TCA -- ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson addressed Katherine Heigl's recent comments where she withdrew herself from a "Grey's Anatomy" Emmy consideration.

"She won an Emmy last year, she's a fantastically talented actress," McPherson says. "I think it's unfortunate when there's any kind of turmoil on that show. There's so many people who work so incredibly hard to make that show the No. 1 show in the country. I never like to see when any of them take it lightly. She's absolutely staying with the show. There's an unbelievable story line for her next season. Shonda Rhimes is excited about that, she actually crafted it."

Of course, that "unbelievable" story line that has Heigl staying with the show next season could involve her character suffering a disfiguring accident and then wasting away at Seattle Grace in a heroically Emmy-worthy fashion before succumbing to her injuries in a very special season finale.
