Show Summary: From Shonda Rhimes, creator/executive producer of “Grey’s Anatomy,” comes the award-winning show “Private Practice,” the story of a team of gifted doctors working together on difficult cases, with patients whose medical needs often pose moral and ethical dilemmas. Together they work to change the lives of their patients for the better, as they look to one another for friendship and love.
The last year has brought great change to the lives of the Seaside Health and Wellness doctors. After struggling with infertility, Addison (Kate Walsh) was blessed to adopt a baby boy named Henry. In her love life, she made the decision to move on from Sam (Taye Diggs), who wasn’t ready for a family, and gave the practice’s newest addition, Jake (Benjamin Bratt), a shot. But just when she started to become comfortable with the new man in her life, Sam stunned her with a proposal. Now Addison has a big decision to make… whom will she choose?
Elsewhere, Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) and Cooper’s (Paul Adelstein) relationship was tested when someone unexpected showed up in their lives: Unbeknownst to Cooper, he had fathered a son, Mason (Griffin Gluck), who is now the third member of their family. After rekindling his romance with wife, Violet (Amy Brenneman), Pete (Tim Daly) found himself in trouble with law when he took his patient off life support without family consent, leaving his freedom now threatened. And recently sober Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) dealt with an extremely difficult pregnancy and carried her brain-less baby to term, even though she knew it would not survive after birth. Yet with the support of her closest confidant, Sheldon (Brian Benben), and the rest of the Seaside Wellness doctors, she proved to have great strength during the most painful period in her life.
