And she is DUNZO!
Just before filming was set to begin again this month, Christina Applegate is bailing on Up All Night.
It’s true! Christina is calling it quits with the NBC show just as five additional episodes were set to be filmed with a new, traditional multi-camera format with a live studio audience.
Christina released a statement about her shocking and sudden departure:
“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. 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.”
Sounds like someone wasn’t too happy with the changes that included series creator Emily Spivey leaving the show over creative differences.
There have been quick rumors Lisa Kudrow was going to step in to take over Christina’s role, but that has already been denied on Twitter by her producing partner, Dan Bucatinsky.
We have a bad feeling this show isn’t going to be staying up all night for much longer.
