For those of you not interested in battling demons with Spike and Faith (see the Buffy
post below), help the Writers Guild send a message to the AMPTP when they picket this afternoon outside Fremantle, one of the world’s largest suppliers of high-end reality fare. Fremantle makes millions of dollars off shows like American Idol
, The Price Is Right
, Family Feud
, The Next Great American Band
, Farmer Wants A Wife
and America’s Got Talent
. All of these shows use writers… and none
of the writers get health insurance, residuals, pension contributions, or proper credits.
So join the WGA for this afternoon’s Reality & Game Show Rally and Informational Picket at…
WHERE: FremantleMedia North America, 4000 W. Alameda Blvd (1 block east of
Pass Avenue), Burbank.
WHEN: 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Speakers scheduled to appear include: WGAW President Patric M. Verrone, SAG member/actress Alfre Woodard, and writers Aaron Solomon and Kai Bowe. Tenacious D. (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) will also perform live.
