No Pay? No Pens! The Writers Guild of America Strike
The ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike has sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry. The WGA, a labor union representing over 11,500 writers in the US, is locked in a dispute with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), a trade association of more than 350 US television and film production companies. The core issues at the heart of the strike have been brewing for quite some time, with the evolution of the entertainment industry playing a significant role.
Skip Montreux and Samantha Vega discuss the ongoing writer's strike in the entertainment industry. They provide an overview of the key players involved, explain the evolution of the industry due to technological advancements, particularly the rise of streaming services, the internet, and artificial intelligence (AI), and discuss how streaming has changed the production process.
