Default Re: FIRINGS SQUADS TAKE THEIR MARK in 2008

And from what I was hearing around the rumor mill today, Monday and Tuesday are going to outweigh all the firings combined thus far. I have zero idea to what extent, but that's what I've been hearing a lot these past few days.

My guess would be more deals, but agencies are going to start swinging the axe soon to. ICM and Innovative started it, but at some point the rest are going to feel the burn.

in regards to the Axium bankruptcy;

not sure if the WGA gets a bond for their writers the same way the Screen Actors Guild does, but, in SAG's case, the people responsible for paying the actors outstanding checks is the studio that hired the actors, not Axium, they're just a payroll company as far as I know.

So, the actor's case would be in collecting from the bond put up by the studio or with the studio itself. The studio would then have an issue with Axium.

thinking it would be the same for anyone else.

cheers,

just my 1.5 cents.

I actually braced myself and the ICM people whether it's permanent and they say no. They are keeping bebefits and base pay for now but have to work from home. So hopefully at least those folks will return after the strike.

Now that Nikki Finke is taking a week off, you guys please keep me updated on the down and dirty as you hear it.

I heard a rumor that the DGA makes a deal tomorrow.

Okay, who am I kidding?

I don't know sh*t. I just read it on unitedhollywood.com, which (aside from my manager) is my new go-to source now that Finke is out.

Oh yeah, Nikki. Her final post after a week of on and off seems a bit strange. What happened? Did she have a nervous breakdown? Has she been kidnapped by Scientologists?

What about folks in the midst of developing an actual show for the networks. Meaning; their pilot was bought and ordered to series...like Jane Espenson's Warehouse 13? Are studios cutting loose deals that were on the cusp but not in the can yet?
