Labor Day Looms as Crisis Point in Hollywood Stalemate

From a New York Times story by Benjamin Mullin, Brooks Barnes, and Nicole Sperling headlined “Labor Day Looms as Crisis Point in Hollywood Stalemate”:

In May, when 11,500 movie and television writers went on strike, Hollywood companies like Netflix, NBCUniversal and Disney reacted with what amounted to a shrug. The walkout wasn’t great, but executives had expected it for months. They could ride it out.

The angry response from Hollywood’s corporate ranks when actors went out on Friday was dramatically different. What began as an inconvenience has become a crisis.
