By now you have heard that the Writers Guild of America, East and Writers Guild of America, West strikes against the members of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers has come to an end. The 2023 strike lasted 148 days, making it the second only to the 1988 strike which lasted 153 days. Close second, I would say.
Though the Screen Actors Guild remains on strike, the great news is that productions can ramp up in anticipation of the SAG strike resolving. With writers able to work again for AMPTP projects, they can revisit scripts that were in development and even those that were in preproduction. Producers can dust off the productions that were halted because of the strike and essentially start preparing for production to resume.
