Dr. Lexie Grey is back! Well, what I really mean is actress Chyler Leigh will be returning to the small screen for the NBC comedy pilot Holding Patterns.

Her life’s a mess and she lacks direction, but she’s not a loser; she’s intelligent, funny, and genuinely values her friends, even when sarcastically mocking them.”
