TV shows and movies hit by the writers’ strike


A number of TV shows and movies are affected by the writers’ strike after negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers faltered.

Writers have peaked at locations in Los Angeles and New York City, while the guild is seeking viewership transparency from streamers, a higher pay floor, and protection against mini-rooms and the use of artificial intelligence.

After the first week of strikes, several scripted productions were halted, either by choice or due to disruption from the lack of showrunners or writers on set or from picketers. Some of those affected include those from Netflix Stranger thingsApple TV+s Booty and those from Marvel Sheet.

During the last writers’ strike, which was 15 years ago, production of shows and movies faced similar shutdowns and delays. They, like the California economy, were also hit financially by the 2007 WGA strike, which lasted more than three months – the impact was about $2 billion (or $2.8 billion in 2023 dollars) and experts predict that the financial toll can be even higher. bigger this time.

While late-night talk shows quickly fizzled out (since they’re scripted to the point of airing), viewers may take longer to notice an impact due to the drastically changed media landscape (particularly a stockpile of on-demand viewing options). . Timing also plays a role, as it’s near the end of the TV season, and studios have been quietly planning for the strike and taking steps to prepare for it for months.

Below is a list of TV shows and movies affected by the writers’ strike.
