Patrick Dempsey is ready for his TV comeback.
Two years after the actor walked away from Grey's Anatomy, killing off his beloved character Derek Shepherd in the process, Dempsey has signed on for the lead role in the upcoming Epix adaptation of the best-selling novel, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair. Production on the 10-part event series is underway in Montreal.
In the suspenseful drama, produced by MGM Television, Dempsey will take on the title role of Harry Quebert, a literary icon who suddenly finds himself indicted for murder after the body of a young girl is found buried on his property.
