Peter Facinelli has exited Fox's upcoming drama series THE INSIDE, which revolves around a young undercover agent played by Rachel Nichols.
The series has been going through a makeover following the September departure of creators Todd and Glenn Kessler. Tim Minear was hired to write a new pilot script while keeping the premise.
Nichols and Facinelli, who played her boss, were the only actors from the original pilot to stay on. But after reading the new pilot script, which features a significantly changed story line, Facinelli asked to be released from the project, sources said. Recasting of the role is under way. Facinelli previously starred in Fox's short-lived "Fastlane."
