Writers Guild Strike

This might not seem like anything we should care about, but we all like TV and movies and some of us plan to maybe work in "The Business" someday. The late night comedy shows have already gone into hibernation and the series work will likely hiccup after the winter break. Mid-season shows might get hammered. Movies will likely see the effects about a year from now, given production timing.

This link points to a discussion about the strike and the demands of the WGA, including a portion of an opinion piece by Joss Whedon (my fellow Wesleyan Alum and creator of some of troupe #358's favorite shows). Once you go beyond the base article and into the reader comments, language might get coarse.

[Updated] One more link from the WGA, here.
