Maura Tierney's TV Comeback Show Axed
Actress Maura Tierney's legal drama The Whole Truth, her first full-time job since battling cancer, has been cancelled.
The former E.R. star, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, signed up to play prosecutor Kathryn Peale in the series, which debuted in September.
However, the project will be short-lived - executives at TV network ABC have decided to axe it after low ratings.
In a post on Twitter.com, co-executive producer KristieAnne Reed writes, "ABC gave us the word. We will only make 13 episodes of The Whole Truth."
