Writers in L.A. are expected to picket 14 studios today, as the Writer's Guild of America has decided to strike. The writers are asking for bigger DVD profits and revenue from the distribution of films and TV shows over the Internet.
Uh-oh -- what does that mean for our favorite shows? Well, nothing, if you're talking reality shows -- those won't be affected and we'll probably see more of them. But if you're hooked on a drama, like Grey's Anatomy, you could be in for a very short stay at Seattle Grace. "Grey's Anatomy is not prepared for the Writers' Guild of America strike," star Patrick Dempsey told Entertainment Tonight. "We are not that far ahead. We have enough show to take us through Christmas, then we'll see if that's the end of the season."
That would suck, but I sort of agree with the writers. Actors get paid tons of money per episode, and though they are a big reason for the success or failure of a show, if the writing is bad, it doesn't matter how good of an actor, or how McDreamy you are. Let's hope this gets settled quickly.
