Retro Man Railroad TracksPerhaps you've been wondering why Leno and Letterman are in reruns...

Since early November, the Writers Guild of America has ceased to script, affecting soap operas, late night comedy shows, and all episodes of series in preproduction.

This strike is affecting more people than just the writers, in fact.

Don't know why the writers are striking in Hollywood?

Watch this video featuring writers from the hit NBC show "The Office" as they stand on the picket lines and share their story with you.





Check out this video to learn more about the strike:

Any comments?

    I'm so pleased that you posted this, Stephanie.

    As an actress, I am unable to work without the writers who create the script. Television, film and theatre productions are all the result of a team effort. Could I write and perform my own script? Sure. Not get paid for my work? Sorry, no go.

    Allowing large corporations to take hard earned dollars away from writers is unacceptable. I fully support this strike and am very curious to hear how others here at voices.com feel about it.

    Thanks for this forum!
