FROM Eliza Skinner
'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.
