Less than a week ago, Eliza Dushku was cast as the female lead in a new series called Bird Dog, under development for TNT. Today, we hear that she has left the series, sending the producers back to the casting room to find a replacement.

She sent this message this morning to her followers on Twitter:

“Hey guys! News to report~ We have mutually & AMICABLY decided to part ways on “Bird Dog” due to creative differences. No worries/fears/tears.”

The premise for the series is a woman who becomes a police officer, then is assigned to partner with her estranged father. Stay tuned for the casting news. [Source: Zap2It]

In other TV news, ABC’s legal drama, The Whole Truth, has been pulled from their lineup. The show won’t even finish airing the remainder of its 13 episodes, at least for the time being. Instead, on January 12, the new series Off the Map will take over the time slot.

Series star Joel McHale is not sad for the parting, since he’s now been signed to continue for the next two seasons of The Soup on E!. He’s also been signed to host the Independent Spirit Awards on February 26 and will still be a part of NBC’s comedy Community. The hard-working actor also has three movies coming out in 2011; What’s Your Number, The Big Year and Spy Kids 4. [Source: Deadline]
