According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Fox show 24 is the first big show affected by the strike. Fox on Wednesday became the first broadcast network to announce a strike-affected midseason schedule minus its signature drama “24.”
An interesting tidbit from the story…
Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox TV became the latest TV studio to send out suspension letters to writers with overall deals, joining CBS Paramount Network TV, ABC Studios and Universal Media Studios.
20th TV also began notifying writers assistants Wednesday that they are being laid off effective immediately, but the studio will pay their health benefits through the end of the year, sources said.
Ugh – I just fear more reality shows soon. And that makes me throw up a little in my mouth.
