Late last night, a top entertainment attorney who reps big-name writers called me to say he’d just closed 40 deals under the wire before the strike starts. So I asked him, “This may be a stupid question. But, if these writers aren’t supposed to write these scripts, why the big rush?” The lawyer paused for a moment, then replied: “Because, during the strike, they’re going to be thinking very, very hard.”
