Pete Tannen is on strike

You guessed it – I’ve been a member of the Writers Guild of America, East, since 1977.

And I’m on strike, supporting my fellow writers against an organization of obsessively greedy movie & TV conglomerates.

I’m even thinking of going out to NBC Studios in Burbank to join three of the original Munchkins from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ who are on the picket line.

Seriously – how often does a member of the Writers Guild get a chance to shake hands with Jerry Maren, the Munchkin who represented the Lollipop Guild?

Solidarity forever.
