About Private Practice

From the Golden Globe-winning creator of GREY’S ANATOMY comes an ABC drama Private Practice. Seattle fades into grey as renowned surgeon Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) aims to reinvent herself. The promise of a simpler golden state of mind has her working alongside medical school friends at California’s Oceanside Wellness Center.

But is the new life prescription her cure? Join Addison newly-divorced-but-professionally-bound Naomi and Sam Bennet the kissable Pete Wilder and Violet Turner — a psychiatrist with her own issues — as affairs of the heart bring on symptoms of love lust and high drama in a journey worth taking.

In April 2012, the show moved to Tuesday night.
