FILE- In this Nov. 23, 2014 file photo, Patrick Dempsey presents the award for pop/rock band, duo or group on stage at the 42nd annual American Music Awards in Los Angeles. In the Thursday, April 23, 2015, episode of "Grey's Anatomy" Dempsey made a surprise departure from the series, when his character Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd died from injuries suffered when he was blindsided by a truck. ABC President Paul Lee was asked Tuesday, Aug. 4, about the decision to kill off Dempsey’s character, Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd  from the show. The question was asked at a bi-annual press conference for TV critics. Lee went on to say that “It was a difficult decision. Patrick obviously has lots of interests outside. He’s very big in motosport. Shonda (Rhimes) decided that was the way to go.” (Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP, File)
