WGA gets rowdy: Strikers raise “Cane”

Cane_2

Strikers didn’t shut down production on CBS’s “Cane” Monday, but they tried. The Jimmy Smits starrer was shooting just outside the CBS Radford lot when strikers noticed cameras rolling. They descended on the set, bullhorns in hand, and began chanting, making filming impossible.

Producers packed up and moved filming of the scene inside the lot.

Over at NBC’s Universal Media Studios, reps say production on all of its skeins, including “The Office,” continued today.  It’s believed the same is true for CBS skeins (save for multicamera comedies such as “Two and a Half Men”). Ditto 20th Century Fox TV. — J.A.
