Pilot News: Mandy Moore Not Pulling for ABC

CBS Pilot News: Mandy Moore Joins AdvocatesCBS Pilot News: Mandy Moore Joins Advocates

Mandy Moore is no longer part of ABC’s Pulling pilot.

In February, Moore joined the cast as man-hungry Louise, one of the single-camera comedy’s three dysfunctional women in their 30s living their lives the way they want, even if society tells them they should have it all figured out by this point.

But as the cast grew, our sister site Deadline reports, Moore’s character changed and the actress decided to exit the project.

Pulling, based on a successful British sitcom of the same name, is exec-produced by Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, Aaron Kaplan (The NeighborsTerra Nova) and British series creators Sharon Horgan and Dennis Kelly.

“Many things change quickly as a pilot moves into production,” Moore told the site. “And in this case, Lee and Gene moved the character in a different direction, it was clear this wasn’t right for me. Rather than jeopardize the show, I asked to step aside.”
