FROM Neal Sacharow
'Fashion Police' Writers Strike The Business producer Darby Maloney talks with Eliza Skinner and Jackie Beat, two of the writers who walked out on strike off of E!'s Fashion Police in April. With the backing of the Writers Guild of America, the writers argue their jobs fall under the Guild's jurisdiction as a comedy-variety show. This past week the writers put a video online calling for Joan Rivers, a lifetime member of the WGA and a co-host on the show, to get behind them. Also joining the conversation is Neal Sacharow of the WGA West.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
