Because of delays in recasting the lead of its new sitcom based on the smash movie "Look Who's Talking," ABC has replaced "Baby Talk" on its fall schedule with the veteran comedy series "Head of the Class," Robert Iger, president of ABC Entertainment, announced Friday. Problems with "Baby Talk" began just as the show was about to begin production two weeks ago when Columbia Pictures Television, which is bankrolling the series, abruptly declared that star Connie Sellecca was off the show.

Sources at Columbia Pictures Television said Tuesday that the producers were attempting to recast the role by the end of the week. They hope to resume production with a new actress by Monday, using the same script they had planned to use this week.
