‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Firefighter Spinoff Casts Miguel Sandoval As The Captain


ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy firefighter spinoff has found its captain. Actor Miguel Sandoval has been tapped to play the series regular role of Capt. Pruitt in the upcoming Shonda Rhimes-produced midseason drama.miguel_sandoval_-_publicity_-_h_2017

The 10-episode, as-yet untitled spinoff, picked up straight to series, is set in Seattle and focuses on firefighters from the captain down the ranks to the newest recruit in their personal and professional lives. The castmembers are expected to be introduced in an episode of the flagship series this season.


Pruitt is described as tough and respected — and loved by his subordinates. He’s a progressive thinker who advocates for his crew, even if it means standing up to his superiors. He’s been offered promotions in the past, but he’s declined because he’d rather be on the front line than behind a desk.


This is Sandoval’s second trip to Shondaland. He guest starred on a season nine episode of Grey’s Anatomy as Hank, a man who brought his husband in for treatment. The actor’s credits also include HBO’s upcoming Amy Adams starrer Sharp Objects. Sandoval previously starred opposite Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice grad Kate Walsh on NBC’s short-lived comedy Bad Judge. More recently, he recurred on BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
