Kristen Wiig departs upcoming Apple comedy amidst scheduling conflicts

Kristen Wiig has had to bow out of an upcoming Apple comedy series due to scheduling conflicts, Variety reports. Wiig was originally slated to star in an Apple adaptation of Curtis Sittenfield’s upcoming collection of short stories, “You Think It, I’ll Say It,” but will be unable to as a result of shooting conflicts with her role as Cheetah in “Wonder Woman 1984.” The ten-episode series was Apple’s first scripted comedy order, and would have represented Wiig’s first return to television since she turned her attention to feature films after her stint on SNL ended in 2012. Sources have told Variety that Apple is still continuing with its plans for the series despite Wiig’s exit, however, and Wiig will remain on as an executive producer alongside Reese Witherspoon, Colleen McGuinness, and Lauren Neustadter.
