Deadline Hollywood editor: Escalating Hollywood WGA strike to delay and shut down productions

The Hollywood Writers Guild of America strike is into its second week, and studios are taking a hit.

The list of shows delaying or stopping production is growing by the day, and already includes Daredevil: Born Again, Billions, FBI: Most Wanted, and the Pretty Little Liars sequel.

Deadline Hollywood's Dominic Patten says the strike started with picketing in the first week, but has since escalated, as the two Writers Guilds on each coast have been taking direct action.

"There's the Writers Guild of America East and there's the Writers Guild of America West. The Writers Guild of America West clearly has more members, cause that's out where Hollywood is. The Writers Guild East, though, have played to their strengths of being a smaller, leaner, meaner organisation."
