Heat Is On TV Nets, With Looming Writer Strike

Heat Is On TV Nets, With Looming Writer Strike - "As talk of a Hollywood writers’ strike continues to build momentum, broadcasters are gearing up for the worst. In fact, the conversation throughout much of the industry has turned from “if there’s a strike” to “when there’s a strike.” Most analysts had initially assumed that the writers, whose contract with the movie studios and TV networks expires Oct. 31, would hold off from striking, opting to later join forces with actors, whose contract is up in June. But several sources now suggest that writers could make a preemptive move, striking as early as November. A primary issue for TV writers is the streaming of scripted content over the Internet and how writers should be appropriately compensated for that. "
