CW Orders More Scripts/Is WGA Voting for Strike?

While Gossip Girl is the only new series to get a reorder, the CW isn’t taking any chances– Cane, Bionic Woman, Chuck, Life and Journeyman all have ordered additional scripts. If there’s a writers strike at the end of this month, viewers won’t suffer–or they’ll suffer more, depending on your take on those shows.

And will there be a strike? The Wall Street Journal featured The Artful Writer as the must-see site for those who want to know which way the wind is blowing. And that includes WGA leadership.

Craig Mazin writes that things are getting worse, and that he’s learning towards a “yes” vote for strike authorization.
