NBC Pulls ‘Glee’ Cast from Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

gleeIt started innocently enough on TMZ, then gained speed through Entertainment Weekly’s Hollywood Insider, and is now all over the Internet: a source close to the people behind Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade has confirmed that NBC instructed the parade organizers to rescind an offer made to the cast of Fox’s Glee to perform.

Orlando Veras, a spokesperson for Macy’s, released a statement saying, “As with any live event, the talent booking process is a fluid one subject to frequent updates or changes. Due to this fact, we don’t confirm talent appearances for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade until early November when the final line-up is determined.”

The parade has showcased numerous talent from various competing networks in the past, but sources feel that spotlighting the entire cast of the hit television show might lead to outright promotion of a rival network. Surely this is not the last we’ve heard of this…
