US writers poised to walk
Here’s what American scriptwriters could be doing as early as next week. Selling burgers!
The Writers’ Guild of America looks set to strike as early as Monday now the deadline of Oct 31 has passed. On Thursday a 3,000 strong meeting in LA voted unanimously to walkout. Behind-the-scenes weekend talks are unlikely to produce any agreed outcome. Late-night talk shows will feel the void first with scripted drama to follow in a few weeks’ time.
Meanwhile some of tinsel town’s most famous scribes had some fun contemplating how they might pay the rent.
