Writers Strike: Weekly Update

Trouble in wonderland. The two sides are slinging mud at each other. This is not going well people. In fact, it's only getting worse. But I don't want to be a Debbie Downer. If you want to find out the bad stuff, check out unitedhollywood. Here are the two positive things that happened this week:

  • The EPs of The Riches and the United Showrunner Committee are putting together a benefit to raise money for people affected by the strike. Lewis Black, Sarah Silverman, Tenacious D and Eddie Izzard among others are scheduled to perform. The event, dubbed Write Aid (gosh they're creative) is scheduled for December 14 at UCLA.
  • The writers and fans brought their dogs to the picket line last week.
