WGA Strike Fallout Still Felt

Feb 11, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A year after the Writers Guild of America strike ended, the fallout is still being felt, as conglomerates continue to cut costs and writers face reductions in post-strike script fees, Daily Variety reports. Other effects of the strike include a primetime development business that’s still recovering from the disruption and the uncertainty facing the Screen Actors Guild, which has slowed down this year’s film business, the trade publication says. The Writers Guild of America West also continues to review taking disciplinary action against Jay Leno for his “Tonight Show” monologues delivered while the guild was on strike, Variety reports.
