Applegate quits 'Up All Night'


"Up All Night" actress Christina Applegate says she has quit the U.S. sitcom, which is in its second season.

"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," quoted Applegate as saying. "Working with [producer] 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." said NBC declined to comment on Applegate’s departure and the fate of the show, which co-stars Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph.

The series has been changed from a single-camera to multiple-camera comedy and has undergone numerous personnel changes among the writing and producing staff. said Applegate initially signed on to the show because she was a new mother learning to juggle family life and career — much like her character on "Up All Night." However, the series then focused more on the fictionalized TV show where her character worked, making it more of a workplace comedy.
