“Back to You” among the first casualties

The strike is claiming its earliest victims with sitcoms “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Back to You” (pictured below), “’Til Death,” “Rules of Engagement” and “The Office” already shut down. And of course the latenight shows immediately went dark. For more details see the story from our TV gurus (and fellow Season Passers) Mike Schneider and Joe Adalian here.

Backtoyou_4After this morning’s rally by showrunners, who convened outside ABC, there should be several more shows going dark as more folks at the helm of shows realize they can’t, in good conscience, picket the companies as writers and then turn around and work for them as producers.
