Pencils down, support up: Showrunners plan rally

TV’s showrunners are planning a show of force Wednesday from 9-11 a.m. at Disney.

Plans are underway for a special picket line packed with TV’s writers-producers, according to two scribes who plan on attending.

No doubt one reason for the showrunner picket is to create some media buzz by assembling some of the medium’s better-known scribes in one place. Another goal is likely to demonstrate that writers at all levels are backing the WGA’s actions.

Showrunners have become an early focal point of the 2007 strike. For more on that, click here
