Casting is underway for the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff!

Rosewood‘s Jaina Lee Ortiz has landed a leading role on the firefighter-themed series, EW has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.

The 10-episode drama will be centered on a group of heroic firefighters, from the captain down to the newest recruit, following the brave men and women as they risk their lives and their hearts — both in the line of duty and off the clock.
