Dempsey Creates Hairdressing Show for ABC

Oct 22, 2009 | 6:20pm EDT

Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has sold a new sitcom idea about hairdressing to TV network bosses at ABC.

The actor created the show, tentatively called Coif, with his wife Jillian, who is a top stylist, and they've brought writers onboard to create the plot for a pilot.

He tells TV Guide magazine, "It's kind of like Cheers or Friends, but it takes place in a beauty school in Los Angeles."

And he has Warren Beatty to thank for perfecting the show: "We watched Shampoo a lot."
