As one of television’s most popular, well-acted shows, Grey’s Anatomy is preparing to receive a handful of Emmy Awards. While looking to buy a dress for the occasion, writer/producer Krista Vernoff has something else to celebrate, as well.

The respected scribe has inked a new two-year deal with Touchstone Television. Under the seven-figure pact, Vernoff has been promoted to executive producer on the smash ABC/Touchstone TV dramady.

Vernoff will work with Grey’s creator/executive producer Shonda Rhimes, while also developing new projects. This deal replaces Vernoff’s existing one with the studio.
