Was it ever determined why Wordplay was slated to be on the schedule last year but was pulled?
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here

Wasn't it something about getting the clearances from a celebrity?

I thought it was something about rights clearances, or a lack thereof.

Unless that celebrity is Tom Kennedy who else could knock out an entire run?

If I recall, word was it was an issue with one of the other production companies besides Vinnedge's that had a hand in the production.
