Writers Strike: Weekly Update

  • Writers and friends resumed picketing today after a short break for Thanksgiving.
  • The WGA and the studios are formally meeting today for the first time since the strike started. Some sources are saying a deal may be in the works, even finalized. I'll believe it when I see it.
  • United Hollywood is doing an innovative live broadcast online today. You can keep up with all of the goings-on straight from the best sources.
  • These Speechless ads are a great show of solidarity. Three cheers to the A-list actors for sticking by the people who make them appear effortlessly witty, smart, or vile. The series of videos are running on Deadline Hollywood Daily. My favorite one features Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm).

That's all she wrote...for now. See you next Monday for the week five update. Let's hope this whole thing is coming to a close by then.
