Actress Maura Tierney has had to pull out from the NBC series “Parenthood” as she continues to undergo treatment for breast cancer. Read more on Maura Tierney below.
Maura Tierney, who has been seen on television shows like “NewsRadio” and “ER,” was set to star alongside Peter Krause and Craig T. Nelson in “Parenthood,” a comedy-drama adapted from the 1989 Ron Howard film.
But NBC announced in July that it was delaying production of the series after Maura Tierney was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Although NBC said they would delay production for eight weeks while Tierney had her cancer treatment, NBC is now saying her treatment is conflicting with their production schedule and they will recast her role.
In a statement NBC said, “While we are saddened that Maura Tierney won’t be able to continue in her current role in ‘Parenthood,’ our main concern is for her quick and full recovery. Our thoughts and best wishes are with her.”
