Vine Talk Stiffs Stanley Tucci, and Just About Everyone Else

Call your accountant; they could owe you some cash.

The PBS television show Vine Talk owes everyone money from its landlord at Lincoln Center, to the program's directors and producers, to their guest stars who are promised a $1,000 "honorarium" fee, to host Stanley Tucci. Even Steve Buscemi, Tucci's production partner, is getting screwed, and that just seems wrong! A rep tells the New York Post, "Some payments have been a lot slower than we have planned, but all the people, crew and staff that worked on the show have been paid in full or a good percentage of what they were due. Everyone will be paid completely." Till then, consider the show corked. [Media Decoder/NYT, NYP, via Eater]
