The Piranha 3D actress landed a starring role in One Big Happy on America's NBC network, but executives have now confirmed the show, executive produced by comedienne Ellen DeGeneres, has been axed.

An NBC spokesman says, "The show One Big Happy is just not coming back. There is no more to say."

The news comes amid a slew of cancellations which has also claimed Kevin Bacon's thriller series The Following and Katherine Heigl's State of Affairs.
