ASBURY PARK -

(AP) - Award-winning actress Meryl Streep won't be there when she's inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame next week.

The Summit native has a last-minute production conflict as part of her role in the HBO series "Big Little Lies" and won't attend the May 6 ceremony in Asbury Park.

Streep is part of a class that includes Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, disco queen Gloria Gaynor, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and E Street Band guitarist and "Sopranos" star Steven Van Zandt.

Also among the inductees are astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly; nurse Clara Maass; politician Millicent Fenwick; athletes Al Leiter, Mary Decker and Carli Lloyd; publisher Steve Forbes and "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro.
