Writers’ Strike Bears Online Fruit
Posted on Jul 3, 2008
During the protracted writers’ strike that gobbled up a good part of fall and winter material for small and big screens alike, some entertainment scribes didn’t let their time in limbo go to waste, such as the group behind Strike.tv, an online network coming soon to a laptop near you.
The Hollywood Reporter:
Strike.tv plans to launch this summer with more than 40 shortform programs, including comedies, dramas and a game show. Some programs will be serialized while others will be standalone; the site has yet to secure advertising.
Participating writers include Lester Lewis (“The Office”), Rob Kutner (“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart”), Stephen E. de Souza (“Die Hard”), Karen Harris (“General Hospital”) and Ron Corcillo (“Malcolm in the Middle”).
