Writer's Guild Rally

sent in by Mr Balcer --

This is to let you know that there will be a rally for writers of crime and cop shows in Los Angeles and New York this Tuesday. See below for details, times and locations. Fans are invited to join, you can meet the writers of your favorite shows.

Here's the announcement that was sent to members of the Writers Guild --

Greetings –

Here’s the chance you’ve been waiting for.

On Tuesday December 18th , we are holding a bicoastal “Scene of the Crime” Rally for writers of crime and cop shows – that means you, my friend. Writers and stars of over 35 current and past crime/cop/law shows will be in attendance in Los Angeles and New York.

And here’s the best part – in Los Angeles, we’re holding the rally at the headquarters of the AMPTP. The Death Star itself.

In New York, the rally will be held at historic Foley Square downtown, in full view of the Federal and State Courthouses.

We’ll be reading a Bill of Indictment against the AMPTP issued by the “Criminal Writing Division” of the WGA. The AMPTP will be declared a crime scene and cordoned off with over a mile of yellow crime scene tape.

As crime writers, we know bad behavior when we see it – and this is our chance to let the AMPTP know what we think of their behavior these last six weeks.

Here are the details:

Los Angeles: December 18th, 10 am to 12 pm PST
AMPTP HQ, 15503 Ventura Blvd., Encino, a few blocks west of the 405 at the corner of Firmament.

New York: December 18th, 12 pm to 2 pm EST
Foley Square, Downtown NYC

Call your fellow crime writers, get your stars to join us, alert your fan sites and have your fans come out to support us. This is going to be a good one.

'The Death Star' - I love it! We call the head office of the company I work for 'Fantasy Island', because no one who works there lives in the real world ;0)
Good luck everyone, lets hope there's a resolution; fast!

Sounds great-I hope this does get a lot of press coverage and a great deal of participation from anyone in the industry with fans as well-I worry about the timing before the holidays and in New York the bad ice storms we had we'll make it difficult if the temps don't go up a little-
Good Luck to all who participate-
