What’s Going on with the SAG/AFTRA Contract?

sag1.jpgThe latest is – we don’t know. They’re still in negotiations. Who knows when they’ll resolve this? Not us. Not anyone.

What we do know is that entertainment writers have to project who the victims would be if a strike does happen.

From the LAT:

In the event of a strike, it would be among more than half a dozen current productions forced to shut down. They include sequels to such hits as “Night at the Museum” and “Transformers,” “The Da Vinci Code” follow-up “Angels & Demons” and a movie version of the Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana.”

Oh no – not the batch of uninspired, lukewarm SEQUELS!! Oh no – not them. Anything but them! Oh dear god – the humanity!
