News: Productions on pause - The Writers' Strike
The Writers Guild of America called a strike on the 2nd May 2023 and are asking their members to not work on any projects throughout the strike. This means that script changes on any American produced productions will be problematic at this time. The American studios and streamers are therefore likely to put on hold any projects that do not have locked off scripts. We will add updates on your department forum pages.
