    Ok all i want to know what is going to happen with this writers strike. I heard on the news the first causualty of this will be the soaps and the late night talk shows. And now that is official does this mean they are not writing at all or what? I have also heard that they might start showing re-runs like classic episodes and stuff like that.

    I dont know what is going to happen, but I would bet (If I was a betting kind of gal ) that it will be over soon enough, I'm sure its not the first strike, and wont be the last. Maybe it will give new writers time to shine, who knows;):)

    The news just said that soaps have enough work "in the can" to last into February. I'm sure the strike will be over long before then. The last time writers went on strike was in 1988. I can't remember how long that one lasted. Anyway, late night talk shows will start their reruns tonight (along with day-time talk), but the soaps are good 'till February.

    I remember the last strike and we were treated to some GREAT old episodes, but that was a long strike, and apparently this time they have it covered for a few months, so we won't probably get to see the vintage stuff.

    It said in the news room on this board that PASSIONS is the only soap that has scripts til FEBRUARY.... All the others will run out way before that.... The producers once wrote their own scripts....and they may be doing that again if it isn't settled.... OR we may be watching reruns...

    AGAIN, Passions is the only SOAP that has episodes written til February....

    the last strike lasted 5 months i read....

    regarding LML ..since she is EP and head writer...read article also that producers that also write...can produce..but not write....


    I tend to think that this strike might go for a while unless the producers give in to some of the demands..

    ...from articles i have read the writers are very determined....
