TV & Movie Production at Risk as WGA Strike Nears

Television and Film production at risk as the Writers Guild of America prepares to go on strike.

Television and film production could grind to a halt as soon as Tuesday, as last minute negotiations by the Writer's Guild of America attempts to get a deal before scheduled strike action.

Negotiations are continuing this weekend, with the hope that an agreement can be reached before the 1st May deadline.

Should the strike go ahead, the first victim is expected to be the plethora of live late night talk and comedy shows, who's writers are mainly WGA members.

Film production would swiftly follow depending on the length of the walk-outs and the depth of negotiations between the interested parties.
