Hollywood Braces For a Writers’ Strike

From a New York Times story by John Koblin, Brooks Barnes, and Nicole Sperling headlined “Hollywood, Both Frantic and Calm, Braces for a Writers’ Strike”:

Writers scrambling to finish scripts. Rival late-night-show hosts and producers convening group calls to discuss contingency plans. Union officials and screenwriters gathering in conference rooms to design picket signs with slogans like “The Future of Writing Is at Stake!”

With a Hollywood strike looming, there has been a frantic sprint throughout the entertainment world before 11,500 TV and movie writers potentially walk out as soon as next week.
