David Letterman digs deep

DavidlettermanpitchThis just in from the home office at the Ed Sullivan Theater in Manhattan. This is why we’ve always loved David Letterman. From his spokesman Steve Rubenstein:

“Next week’s tapings of ‘The Late Show’ and ‘The Late Late Show’ have been cancelled and we will continue to make a week-by-week determination about future tapings. However, it is important to Dave that our staff members have some degree of support during this uncertain time. Therefore, Worldwide Pants, which independently produces both shows, will continue to pay the non-writing staff of the shows – fully compensating lower-salaried employees, and providing a substantial portion of salaries for those at the higher end — at least through the end of the year.  Of course, we all want to get back to work as soon as possible, and it remains our hope that both sides in this dispute will make progress toward that end. In the meantime, we will continue monitoring this situation closely as we make decisions regarding our future production schedule.”
