DarkUFO - Lost

Pay our writers! Save our shows!

Thanks to methosrocks for this suggestion about something, we the fans, can do to help a little towards the strike.

I have a simple suggestion in that regard, and I was thinking of setting up a blog and posting links to it, but I'm so technically challenged it's not even funny! Since you already attract large groups from several fandoms, I wondered if you would consider posting this suggestion?

It boils down to sending a postcard to whichever of the networks listed below carries your favorite show(s), or to all of them, saying something along these lines:

Pay our writers! Save our shows!

I hereby pledge my support for the striking writers of the WGA in their efforts to obtain suitable compensation for programming aired via the internet and all forms of "new media", and I will express my solidarity by refusing to watch any new game shows or "reality programming" introduced during their strike.


Here are the appropriate addresses:

Stephen McPherson, President
ABC Entertainment
2040 Avenue of the Stars
Century City, CA 90067

Nina Tassler, President
CBS Entertainment
7800 Beverly Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90036-2112

Gail Berman, President
FOX Entertainment
10201 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90035

Jeff Zucker, President and CEO
NBC Universal
3000 W. Alameda Ave.
Burbank, CA. 91523

Dawn Ostroff
President of Entertainment,
The CW Television Network
4000 Warner Boulevard, Bldg #168
Burbank, CA 91522

It's not much, but it could catch on and lead to the networks receiving quite a few pledges to boycott whatever cheap programming they're counting on feeding us over a long strike. I also think it would give the writers a nice morale boost too.

What do you think?
