Everything About The Hollywood Strike You Need To Know, Explained By Actors & Writers

With the WGA and SAG-AFTRA members on strike for the first time together since 1960, an entire industry has shut down, with massive implications for jobs beyond TV & film. Join Armin Shimerman, Kitty Swink, Phil Morris, Lisa Klink, Bertila Damas, and Tim Lounibos as we unpack and explain what's happening in Hollywood right now.

This roundtable discussion breaks down critical issues like base pay, residuals, and healthcare, addresses the misinformation the average person may have about the strike, why the growing threat of AI is such a danger to their work and everyone else, what actors and writers can and can't do during this strike, and much more. This diverse group with Star Trek on their lengthy resumes pulls back the curtain on the negotiations with the AMPTP and what has to be done to resolve this conflict.

 There's a lot to understand about this very complicated situation. This chat will clear up your confusion about the strike, help you understand why it's happening and, why it's so important, and how critical it is to make serious changes before things get worse.
