The $141 million picket sign

A showrunner whose credits include “Book of Daniel” and “Titus,” WGA member Jack Kenny is brandishing a homemade sign that features the photos and annual salaries of Sumner Redstone ($56 million), Les Moonves ($25 million), Rupert Murdoch ($26 million) and Peter Chernin ($34 million).

Earlier this week, WGA East prexy Michael Winship asserted that the entire cost of the guild’s proposal increases is less than $200 million over three years.

“We know that we’re in it for a long haul and that it’s going to get tougher,” said Kenny toward the end of  his shift outside Paramount Studios Tuesday. “But this is our last chance to get residuals for work on the Internet. If we don’t do it now, they’ll never give it to us.”

Earlier in the day, several Teamster trucks turned away from the lot. “I am so incredibly grateful to the Teamsters,” Kenny said. “I know that this is really hard for them.”   

UPDATED: On Wednesday, Kenny’s signs offered takes on what notable characters might have said without writers:

Margot Channing: “Buckle up. I’m pissed.”

Dirty Harry: “Go ahead. Make me shoot you.”

Rhett Butler: “Frankly, lady, who cares?”

Vito Corleone: “Make him a really good offer.”
