Strike Hell! Let’s Dance: Alex Chow-Stuart

AlexBarrowWide.jpg

Alexander Chow-Stuart has a nifty idea for all those thrown out of work by the WGA strike:

Put on a show!

Commenting at the indispensable Nikki Finke’s site, he suggests that the WGA website become the new home of online entertainment:

I’m not suggesting that we try to create an alternative to network programming (although I wish we could), but why not at the very least take some of our best people OFF the picket lines and have them do what they do best: write and create hugely enjoyable entertainment?

I could see the SNL crew creating smart, funny, sharp sketches–or another rap video like Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg’s Lazy Sunday–about the strike, about the behind-the-scenes negotiations, such as they were–and about how this strike impacts ordinary people.

Is this genius or what?
