Studio politics is some of it. The rest is just weird. Maybe you've heard of a movie called New Jersey Turnpikes. Probably you haven't. Whatever the case, you definitely haven't seen it. A mockumentary in the vein of This is Spinal Tap set in the ABA, New Jersey Turnpikes has been rotting in the vaults of Universal Studios for nearly twenty years. The question is why. Why doesn't a major studio film starring the likes of Kelsey Grammer, Orlando Jones, and a young Jason Segel exist in any media format? A mock-up of a one-sheet depicting Jones in his oversized Kool Williams afro exists online.
