TVLine has reported that Brittany Snow and Aml Ameen have left NBC’s returning legal dramedy Harry’s Law that stars Kathy Bates. After a show ends its first season some tweaks are usually made, but dropping half the cast seems to be something odd. However, knowing creator David E. Kelley’s knack of revolving cast members, it should come to no surprise.
Snow didn’t seem to fit into the show too well, being the odd woman out, but Ameen was doing a lot more casework in the latter half of the season so his departure seems a bit odd. Both cast members have options to return in guest spots if they choose to do so.
Harry’s Law was one of the bright spots on NBC’s rather bleak season last year, and with a cushier timeslot in the fall (Wednesdays at 9PM), Kelley might try to bring in some bigger cast and retool the show to that advantage.
