Torrey DeVitto Envisioned Lots Of Drama In A Chicago Med Crossover With Grey's Anatomy

Medical dramas are a staple on network television for a reason. With high stakes, a life-affirming premise, and no shortage of romance, it's no wonder they keep audiences coming back for more. Whether you like classics like "ER," "General Hospital," and "Doogie Howser, M.D.," or more light-hearted iterations like "Nurse Jackie," "House," and "Scrubs," there's a medical show out there for everyone. Nowadays, another title that comes to mind is "Chicago Med," which has followed the lives of the professionals working in the emergency room at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center for eight seasons (via IMDb).

As with any medical show, the series has a range of exciting characters who face nepotism, fragile egos, and wavering loyalties both in and out of the operating room. The series also features characters from "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Fire," a tried and true Dick Wolf tactic that allows for plenty of crossover episodes. However, in another universe, Dr. Natalie Manning actress Torrey DeVitto imagines that Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) would make a good foil for none other than the reigning queen of medical melodrama herself, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).

Torrey DeVitto thinks Gaffney Chicago Medical Center could go head-to-head with Grey Sloan Memorial

When it comes to a potential crossover event, Torrey DeVitto would love it if "Chicago Med" went up against Shondaland's crown jewel. In an interview with Glitter, the actress explained the reasoning behind her choice. 

"I think it would be hilarious to do a crossover with 'Med' and 'Grey's Anatomy,'" DeVitto replied. "What would that be like?? Lots of drama and arguing over what hospital and doctors know best!"

A mash-up between the shows would make for a worthwhile competition. After weathering Seattle's rainy climate and multiple near-death experiences, Grey Sloan Memorial doctors can handle anything. On the other hand, it's possible that seasoned psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) could win the day by making the doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial face their problems. At the end of the day, the doctors at Gaffney would give the staff at Grey Sloan Memorial a run for their money. However, because "Grey's Anatomy" has been airing on ABC since it premiered in 2005 and "Chicago Med" is part of NBC's "One Chicago" franchise, it's doubtful that a crossover event would be possible. Even if a crossover did happen, DeVitto left "Chicago Med" after playing Dr. Natalie Manning for six seasons so she wouldn't be a part of it anyway.
