[ # ] Drew Barrymore, The Talk, and Jennifer Hudson halt production
September 17th, 2023 under Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Hudson, Talk Shows

Last week, Drew Barrymore, The Talk, and Jennifer Hudson went back into production and planned on premiering the new season of their daytime talk shows tomorrow. And the striking workers of the Writers Guild of America, along with actors, were not happy with their decisions.

Therefore, they started picketing their shows because even though they are cleared by the Screen Actors Guild to do their talk shows, they are not from the WGA because they have writers from the union who work there.

So, on Friday, Barrymore released a tearful apology video, and she got attacked again. So, today, she made an announcement. “I have listened to everyone, and I am making the decision to pause the show’s premiere until the strike is over,” she wrote. “I have no words to express my deepest apologies to anyone I have hurt and, of course, to our incredible team who works on the show and has made it what it is today. We really tried to find our way forward. And I truly hope for a resolution for the entire industry very soon.”

Shortly after her announcement, The Talk and Jennifer Hudson followed suit.

I hope that the AMPTP finally negotiates a fair contract ASAP because this is really hurting people. They have billions of dollars, and most of the people who work in show business have just hundreds left in their bank accounts. It is really bad here. People who aren’t even in the industry are struggling because they depend on the studios and their employees to keep their businesses alive.

It is disgusting how the AMPTP has handled this whole situation. Wait until they find out that you can’t take it with you in hell.
