It looks like the writer’s strike is over! Apparently they got a “fair deal” so that’s good (even thought I would have no idea what a fair deal is in Tinsel Town). The thing that sucks about all this is the money lost or wasted…and all my nights wasted on other “productive” things instead of NBC television. Says the Seattle Times:
The strike took a $3.2 billion toll in direct and indirect costs on the economy of Los Angeles County, the home of most of the nation’s TV and film production, according to a new estimate from Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp.
The last writers strike, a 153-day walkout in 1988, caused an estimated $500 million in lost wages.
So yeah, I’m pretty stoked.
