Grey's Anatomy director gets promotion

thirtysomething actor-turned-director Peter Horton has been promoted to executive-producer status at Grey's Anatomy under a deal with the producer of ABC's red-hot medical drama.

His two-year, seven-figure pact with Disney's Touchstone Television also covers his services as principal director next season.

Additionally, he will team with Grey's creator-executive producer Shonda Rhimes to direct and serve as an executive-producer on her untitled ABC drama pilot about four female journalists.

Horton has been on Grey's since the 2005 pilot, which he directed, and served as a co-executive producer on the show. His work has earned him nominations for an Emmy and DGA Award.

Horton has been a staple on ABC on- and off-camera for almost 20 years, since his starring turn on the network's critically acclaimed ensemble drama thirtysomething.
