FROM THIS EPISODE

Most of TV has gone into repeats and reality; three movies have shut down; writers accuse the studios of bad faith, and the studios say the writers are being “ideological.” The recipe calls for thousands of people to be out of work over Christmas and for some time beyond. Will a long walkout change long-standing practices in the industry of entertainment?

Main Topic Talks Between Writers and Studios Break Down. Why? What’s Next? 17 MIN, 58 SEC

Thousands of people are going to be out of work for a long time if the producers and writers can’t reach an agreement and at the moment, they’re farther apart than ever. On Friday, the film and TV producers told the writers to put up or shut up. The writers accused them of bad faith. The producers came back with the charge that the writers were “ideological.”  In any case, they’re not talking.
