Continuing Writers Strike Could Jeopardize Upfronts

After the latest breakdown in negotiations between the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers and the WGA, the writers strike is now in its sixth week. And if it lasts another month to six weeks more, it could jeopardize 2008 pilot production and the next TV upfronts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Award season, with its glut of ceremonies requiring script writers, is also edging nearer, and event presenters may find themselves on their own. Rosalind Jarrett from the SAG awards—which will take place next month at the Shrine and will announce its nominees next week—says no plans are yet in place to modify the program as a result of the strike.
