Looking For Writers? How Aboot Us, Eh?

by Paul William Tenny

tina-fey-picketing.jpgA couple of stories in Variety remind us that where there is demand, there will always be supply. With all writers currently in strike in Hollywood, there is a chance however remote that U.S. producers will start looking outside the country to fill their gaps rather than subjugating themselves to bargaining with the local red-shirt wearing scum that have the audacity to demand fair payment for the scripts that make their bosses billions of dollars each year.

The question of the day seems to be how would you like House to talk down to his desperate minions, with a British or a Canadian inflection? Home grown content from across the border has been sparse over the years as most of Canada's television "industry" exists as a third arm to Hollywood as a place for cheap labor and lots and lots of trees ready for hugging at a moments notice.

Trees don't have a union, right?
