Up All Night‘s bad luck continues: First came NBC’s October announcement that the single-camera comedy transform into a multi-camera one, shot in front of a live audience, for five episodes. Then creator/executive producer Emily Spivey left. On Friday, Christina Applegate, the star of the show, announced she was leaving.
Now, it appears the original five episode order of the new format will be reduced to just one. The episode will be directed by master multi-camera helmer James Burrows, and will not feature Applegate, reports Deadline. It is still unclear whether or not Applegate will be replaced, though rumors are flying that NBC is looking at Friends‘ Lisa Kudrow to take on the character. NBC has no comment.
In the midst of all these changes, we’re left to wonder: What will be left of Up All Night when it finally airs? Is there enough of the show left to even save at this point?
