Christina Ricci has left her NBC comedy pilot "Girlfriend in a Coma," according to Deadline.com.

Ricci was set to star in the NBC series as Karen, a woman who awakens from a coma to find out she has a teenage daughter played by Miranda Cosgrove. Daniel Stern and Anne Cusack are also attached to "Girlfriend in a Coma" as Karen's parents.

Deadline.com reports Ricci left the project after the first table read. Cosgrove tweeted about the table read to her fans:

The "Girlfriend in a Coma" pilot hails from "Nurse Jackie" co-creator Liz Brixius and is based on Douglas Coupland’s novel of the same name.

Ricci previously starred in ABC's "Pan Am," which was canceled after a season. She went on to guest star on CBS's "The Good Wife" for an episode earlier in its current fourth season.
