A comedy series slated to debut as part of NBC’s 2012-13 lineup has recast its female lead, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
The network tapped JoAnna Garcia to take over the part in the sitcom "Animal Practice," the story reports. Irish actress Amy Huberman, who played the part in the pilot, left the program earlier this month, as previously reported.
Garcia will perform opposite Justin Kirk’s veterinarian, an animal doctor who likes animals but hates their owners, the story says.
Garcia most recently co-starred in the untitled CBS comedy from Greg Malins/Greg Berlanti, which was passed over this season.
