Inside Move: Fliers hit home for ‘Model’ makeover

CW entertainment prexy's neighborhood papered

The controversy surrounding the dozen striking writers on the CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” has taken a bizarre turn.

Flyers blasting CW prexy of entertainment Dawn Ostroff — and giving her home address — materialized in her Brentwood neighborhood late last week. The missives, which did not include any indication of authorship, were headlined “OFFICIAL NOTICE: Your Neighbor Deserves Scorn,” followed by a recap of grievances in the 3-month-old dispute.

“She evidently has no respect for us,” the flyer concluded. “Why should anyone respect her?”

The flyer contained no mention of the WGA West, which has been actively backing the writers. Guild, reacting to a story on Defamer.com, issued a statement disavowing any connection to the flyers and added, “We do not support personal attacks of this sort.”

The scribes walked out in July over the CW’s refusal to give in to their demand for a WGA contract. Despite daily protests, the weblet launched the seventh season of “Model” on Sept. 20.

The WGA, which has been trying, unsuccessfully so far, to organize reality series, has been using more confrontational tactics over the past year, including disrupting industry conferences, staging street theater and launching Web sites that mock product placement. A recent WGA rally at Pan-Pacific Park supporting the “Model” writers drew about 900.

The CW did not respond to a request for comment.
