Mandy Moore has exited the single-camera comedy pilot show, "Pulling." The project revolves around women in their 30s living their lives the way the want to, even if society indicates they should have already made some changes.

The show, directed by Jason Moore and written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, will certainly miss Moore, who was the first actor cast in a major role on the pilot. Moore was cast to play the character of Louise, who is described as optimistic and working hard to find a husband.

June Diane Caphel was recently cast as the lead, along with the addition of supporting actors, that changed the dynamic of Moore's character and prompted her to exit. "Pulling" is based off the successful 2006 British series.

"Mandy is a pro, and has been very patient and accommodating with us," Pullingproducers said. "As we moved closer to production, it was clear we needed to go in a different direction for the character, and Mandy agreed to do what was best for the show. She's an immensely gifted actress and we hope to have the pleasure of working with her again."  

ABC recently produced a comedy pilot starring Mandy Moore last season and another Rich Appel comedy project she was tied to in a pilot commitment.

Many things change quickly as a pilot moves into production," Moore said. "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. They and ABC were very accommodating, and wish them all the best in the fall. It's a terrific show that worked so well in the UK, I hope it gets the audience it deserves here."
