'Grey's Anatomy' Star Trying to Rescue Troubled Coffee Company AP
"Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey has made a bid to buy a Seattle-based coffee company that filed for bankruptcy protection in October, reports the Associated Press.
Dempsey said he wants to rescue the coffee-house chain Tully’s Coffee and save more than 500 jobs. The actor's role in "Grey's Anatomy" gives him a tie to Seattle, since his character, Dr. Derek Shepherd, works at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital, the story notes.
A sale would have to be approved by a judge, and a bankruptcy court hearing is set for Jan. 11, the piece notes.
