Ellen Pompeo scaling back role on Grey's Anatomy

Editors at Deadline reported on Wednesday that the actress has signed on to appear in an eight-episode Hulu limited series about the ongoing case of Ukraine-born orphan Natalia Grace Barnett.

She will remain onboard as a narrator and executive producer. In addition, the 52-year-old will serve as an executive producer on the new Hulu project, which was written by Katie Robbins.
