Eliza Dushku drops out of TNT pilot 'Bird Dog'

After less than a week on board as the star of TNT's "Bird Dog" pilot, Eliza Dushku is officially out.

The actress told fans directly, via Twitter, on Dec. 6: "Hey guys! News to report~ We have mutually & AMICABLY decided to part ways on "Bird Dog" due to creative differences. No worries/fears/tears."

Well, it's nice to know that neither party is crying in their coffee over this one, but you have to wonder how spectacularly big those differences had to be for Dushku to drop out so soon.

As we previously reported, "Bird Dog" follows a woman (who Dushku was originally cast to play) who becomes a police officer, only to be partnered with her estranged father.

Any thoughts on who you'd like to step into Dushku's shoes -- or did your interest begin and end with her involvement?
