Amber TamblynAmber Tamblyn may be checking out of 'House,' but the young starlet isn't preparing to leave the Fox family just yet.

According to Deadline, Tamblyn is teaming with 'House' executive producer Katie Jacobs and 'The Wire' co-creartor Ed Burns for a project about a young public school teacher. The drama project has a script commitment from the network.

Jacbos and Tamblyn came up with the idea together while working on 'House,' and the duo brought in Burns to further develop the project together. Burns will write and Jacobs is set to direct.

I wish they would keep Amber Tamblyn on House. She is more challenging for House than Olivia Wilde. But since they won't, I am glad they are working on a new project for her. I liked her on Joan of Arcadia that was cancelled too early.

They better not replace Hetty, and especially NOT with Claire Forlani who wore out her TV welcome when she was on CSI:NY. While I adore this program, and everyone else who's involved with it, Hetty is my biggest reason for watching!
