WGA’s timely reminder for Jay and Conan

ConanobriencropOn the heels of today’s formal announcement from NBC that Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien will be back in the saddle on Jan. 2, WGA was quick to distrib this statement to its members and the media. How exactly O’Brien, who is a WGA member, is supposed to perform on air without writing material, in his head if not on paper or at a keyboard, is a mystery…


The Council of the Writers Guild of America, East, Inc. and the Board of Jaylenocrop Directors of Writers Guild of America, West, Inc. (collectively the “Guild”), have adopted Strike Rules which will go into effect if the Guild calls a strike.  The Strike Rules, among other provisions, prohibit Guild members from performing any writing services during a strike for any and all struck companies.  This prohibition includes all writing by any Guild member that would be performed on-air by that member (including monologues, characters, and featured appearances) if any portion of that written material is customarily written by striking writers.
