Hollywood screenwriters on strike
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
November 05, 2007
Television shows across the US are likely to come to a virtual standstill with the TV and Film Screenwriters Guild of America setting a deadline to negotiate with the production houses on royalty issues. Screenwriters have long been demanding that production houses should duly compensate them for the revenue earned from DVD sales and downloads.

Patrick Verrone, president of the Writers Guild West said: “Our basic mantra is if you get paid we get paid and if you don’t we don’t either.” The ones most likely to be directly affected are the TV viewers across the US as it’s the sitcoms and soaps that require real-time updating of scripts though movie projects are also likely to be delayed. This would be the first time in 20 years after the five-month long strike in 1988. Negotiations are still on with studio bosses trying hard to strike a deal before the November 5th, 12.01 AM deadline. When it comes to screenwriters, guess it’s the same situation everywhere.
