At 12:01 yesterday morning The Writers Guild of America officially went on strike after 97.85% of voting members voted yes to authorize a strike.
This is where I’m going to ask you to do something. Please support this strike. Late night shows have already started airing reruns. If this strike goes for a long time your favorite shows will be affected. Yellowjackets writers were at work for season 3 for one day, that will probably be delayed. It’s going to suck. This is not the fault of the writers. This is the fault of the streaming services. The writers are negotiating with Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Studios and Warner Bros. These companies make billions, and writers are the ones creating the worlds and characters we love so much. Please support.
“I think we’re getting to the point where it’s going to be that the only people who can afford to try to start a career in television or movies are going to be people who are independently wealthy already, which I don’t think is good for television or movies. I don’t think we want that,” – Bob Waksberg
