AAEA Hollywood Affected By Writers Strike

By Norris McDonald. AAEA Hollywood writers Environment Man, Holly Wood and Alan Smithee are not on strike but are not writing to show solidarity with the members of the Writer's Guild Association. Talks between the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers and the 12,000 member Writers Guild of America broke down last week and now television show productions are threatened.

Some shows are already turning to reruns to fill the void. A key issue involves giving writers more money from the sale of DVDs and the distribution of shows via the Internet, cell phones and other digital platforms. Producers will not agree to restrictions to their ability to experiment with new digital delivery options for films and TV shows. Although I am in solidarity with the writers, we must still provide information distribution involving African American, environmental and Hollywood issues.
