In a Hollywood minute, Amanda discusses Hollywood and the Writers’ Guild Associate strike starting tonight. So all late-night shows are going to start re-runs as they have no writers to write scripts! This doesn’t just affect the writers, who are striking due to pay and streaming compensation in specific, it affects the whole industry. Actors, makeup, production, crew, and literally everyone because all of it will be shut down resulting in no work! If you remember the writers’ strike of 2007-2008 you might remember the effect it had on California’s economy. That strike cost the state $2.1 billion dollars! Now the WGA is looking at multiple billions of dollars they feel they are not being compensated for, in the wake of streaming. So we are talking big dollars here.
