‘Biggest Loser’ facing IATSE strike

Production delayed during labor action

NBC reality series “The Biggest Loser” is facing a strike by the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

IATSE president Matthew Loeb made the announcement Wednesday.

“This is a top-rated prime-time television show, and the crew remains unified,” Loeb said. “The strike is the result of a unanimous decision by members of the production crew that they get a contract similar to others covering these types of productions, and we are resolute in getting it for them.”

IATSE said the strike against the series and its production entities — Reveille Prods., 25/7 Prods. and 3 Ball Prods. — follows a unanimous vote of support by the production crew members. The union also said that the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists and the Directors Guild of America already have agreements with the production.

“The Biggest Loser” is in its 10th season.
