Welcome to week 5 of the Writerâ€™s Guild of America (WGA) strike. Where is everything at?
On Tuesday, the WGA will return to negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP). The last talks resulted in an insulting, and quickly rejected, offer to the writers.
There is a lot of speculation that the strike won’t settle this week, and may go as long as March. If true, as of this Sunday, most actors will be freed to look for work, which there is a lot of right now. Why? Because they may strike in June! Oh joy!
I hear a lot of people starting to call the writers “greedy” and how they are harming people like craft services, grips, and so on. To these people, all I can say is, “Way to believe the producers!”
