Grey's Anatomy - Ellen Pompeo Inks New 2-Year Deal, Adds Producer Title



Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has signed a new two-year deal with ABC Studios, the studio behind the long-running ABC medical drama.

The Shonda Rhimes-created Grey’s Anatomy has not been officially renewed beyond its current 14th season. But with Pompeo on board, the veteran series, which remains one of the highest-rated dramas on broadcast television, is expected to continue for at least two more seasons, its 15th and 16th.

As part of the new deal, Pompeo became a producer on Grey’s Anatomy starting midway this season. She also will be a co-executive producer on the upcoming untitled Grey’s Anatomy spinoff series.

With the new pact, which I hear will pay Pompeo north of $550,000 per episode, she is expected to become the highest paid actress in television.

Pompeo's new pact will have her earning more than $20 million a year — $575,000 per episode, along with a seven-figure signing bonus and two full backend equity points on the series, estimated to bring in another $6 million to $7 million. She also will get a producing fee plus backend on this spring's Grey's spinoff as well as put pilot commitments and office space for her Calamity Jane production company on Disney's Burbank lot.
