Producers prepare for possible strike

Los Angeles Times
By Richard Verrier, Los Angeles Times

Schedules for TV shows and movies are moved up ahead of contract talks with writers.

excerpted ~

Guild leaders have alleged that studios are trying to scare writers by suggesting they are stockpiling scripts and shows. There has been little evidence of a large-scale stockpiling like there was in 2001, when fear of strikes by actors and writers caused a major acceleration of production.

"We've never seen stockpiling to be a significant negotiating strategy," said Chuck Slocum, assistant executive director of the Writers Guild of America, West. "We don't see any reason a deal cannot be reached and we look forward to negotiating to that end."

Nonetheless, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" has started shooting its ninth season, two months earlier than usual.

"I firmly believe that the potential for a strike is much greater and more ominous than many people are saying," said Dick Wolf, the show's executive producer. "Therefore, we're going to make as many episodes as possible before a strike takes place." Full article.

OVER & OUT? Creator hoping to save Law & Order, spinoff

By Bill Carter, NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SERVICE
4.22.07

The future of Law & Order, one of the most enduringly popular shows in television history, will be decided over the next few weeks as its network, NBC, and its creator, Dick Wolf, mull over a wrenching decision:

Is it finally time to shut down production of a series that has churned out almost 400 episodes, fueled ratings for several cable channels with its voluminous repeats and spawned two successful spinoffs, all the while generating enormous profits for both NBC and Wolf? More.

Thanks Denise
