Picket schedule released for the next week; plus, Xena Day!

The WGA’s announced its picketing schedule for next week at the major Los Angeles lots, including 6 a.m. shifts at Paramount, Warner Bros. and CBS Radford. It’s also made the strategic decision to stop picketing at Sony, due to the desire to use its resources effectively, according to one WGA staffer.

Finally, it’s set the first theme day picket 2008 with a Xena Day at Disney on Jan. 24.
