Three get canned from Chelsea Handler sitcom

Viewers haven't had the chance to see Natalie Morales, Angel Laketa Moore or Jo Koy in NBC's comedy "Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," and the network would like to keep it that way.

According to TVLine, the trio of actors were let go from Chelsea Handler's semi-autobiographical sitcom (drawn from her book of the same name) and their characters are heading back to the drawing board.

A spokesperson for the show cites "creative reasons" as to why the three won't be moving forward with the show, which is slated to debut in the midseason.

"That '70s Show" star Laura Prepon, meanwhile, is staying in the lead role of Chelsea Handler. Morales was supposed to play her best friend, whereas Moore and Koy had been tapped to portray her sports bar co-workers. Preview clip is below:
