Ariel Winter has replaced Demi Lovato in the cast of NBC’s new sitcom, Hungry.

Deadline reports that Lovato, who had been attached to the project for over a year, was forced to step aside from the project due to scheduling conflicts.

Though they will no longer feature in the cast, Lovato reportedly remains an executive producer alongside Scooter Braun, Scott Manson, James Shin, Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner.

The show, written by Suzanne Martin and directed by James Burrows, will follow friends from a food issues group as they attempt to navigate their way through life.
