Jason George joins 'Off the Map'

Pilot is latest from 'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes

From Seattle Grace to Cruz del Sur.

Jason George, who has been recurring on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" this season as anesthesiologist Ben Warren, has joined the network's new medical drama pilot from "Grey's" creator Shonda Rhimes, "Off the Map."

"Map," penned by Jenna Bans, revolves around three doctors who leave the comfort of the U.S. to work at an isolated tropical clinic, Cruz del Sur.

George will play Dr. Otis Abbot, a brilliant ER doctor at the clinic who likes women, cigarettes, and the occasional dirty joke and works closely with the clinic's founder, Ben Hanley (Martin Henderson).

While he is described as very talented, Abbot's brilliance is not quite evident in his motto: "When in doubt, give Ibuprofen."

George, whose character on "Grey's" has hit it off with Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), is a favorite of Rhimes, who also cast him in her pilot last year, "Inside the Box."

He also has been a fixture at ABC where he has co-starred on three series, "What About Brian," "Eli Stone" and, most recently, "Eastwick."

George is repped by TalentWorks and Management 360.
