Christina Applegate is officially departing NBC's comedy UP ALL NIGHT, the actress confirmed to Deadline.
The project, produced by SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's Lorne Michaels, is currently being revamped as a multi-camera sitcom. As of yet, however, none of the newly-formatted episodes have been filmed, the site reports. With one of its stars leaving, the news doesn't bode well for the series.
"It's been a great experience working on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors," Applegate told Deadline. "Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family. I will miss the cast, producers and crew, and wish them the best always."
Execs aren't abandoning Up All Night altogether, the site reports. According to multiple sources, NBC is on the hunt for a replacement, including FRIENDS' Lisa Kudrow.
