NBC Crucified Over Britney Booking

NBC has issued a statement regarding the upcoming Britney Spears/Will & Grace stunt casting brouhaha.

Religious groups have been in an uproar, calling NBC anit-Christian after it was reported the singer would play a mocked religious TV personality who'd emcee a cooking segnemt called "Cruci-fixin's."

According to the network, "Some erroneous information was mistakenly included in a press release describing an upcoming episode of Will & Grace, which, in fact, has yet to be written," the network said in a statement, which was disseminated to its affiliates. "The reference to 'Cruci-fixins' will not be in the show and the storyline will not contain a Christian characterization at all. We value our viewers and sincerely regret if this misinformation has offended them."

Suuuuuuuuure. Spin much?
