30 Rock Switcharoo

When NBC announced to much fanfare that it was picking up a sitcom created by Tina Fey, her good friend Rachel Dratch was attached to the project as the insecure Jenna DeCarlo who would get pushed aside on the fictional show within a show by Tracy Jordan, a character played by Tracy Morgan. NBC, however, didn't like Rachel Dratch's character and made Tina Fey recast her with Jane Krakowski. The original pilot episode was completely scrapped and reshot and Ms. Dratch was relegated to various guest starring roles on the sitcom.
