11 of Your Favorite Shows and Films Affected by Writer’s Strike
If you haven't heard, things are heating up in Hollywood as writers stand up and go on strike.
BEHIND THE SCENE STARS
Movie stars are easily recognizable and are the face of movies and shows. However, the true geniuses behind those roles are the writers whose creativity and blood, sweat, and tears are put into every line.
Without writers, there would be nothing. We'd have to go back to silent cinemas, and I don't think anyone wants that. That's why the Writers Guild Association has put their pens down and grabbed picket signs to go on strike.
HALTING PRODUCTION AS NEGOTIATIONS CONTINUE
They are negotiating better wages and other issues they face. Meanwhile, many films and shows have completely halted production while the strike continues.
Here are some of your favorite shows that are currently affected by the writer's strike, so plan accordingly.
