Well folks, looks like it might be a short, short season after all.

From the AP:



HOLLYWOOD WRITERS GOING ON STRIKE
By GARY GENTILE, AP Business Writer (11/01/07)

LOS ANGELES - Television and movie screen writers said Thursday they would go on strike for the first time in nearly 20 years in a dispute over royalties. Four writers told The Associated Press that Writers Guild of America President Patric Verrone made the announcement in a closed-door session, drawing loud cheers from the crowd [...] Writers said the guild board would meet Friday to formally call a strike and decide when it would start. They said guild members would be told Friday afternoon.

Nothing much to do here but ride it out and hope for the best.

EDIT:

Lots of media outlets have special articles up regarding the strike.  This one at the WALL STREET JOURNAL does a pretty good job of summing up the issues at stake.
