Work stoppage looming? Impasse in WGA negotiations over The Onion’s ONN series on IFC
Last night, former and current contributors to The Onion -- America's leading humor print and online publication -- received an appeal by email to support the writing staff of the IFC's Onion News Network series, who wrote for the first season without an agreement under the Writers Guild of America. An email from the WGA informed them last night, the ONN writing staff were not about to continue their second season as "the only scripted live action television show now in production where the writers did not work under a WGA agreement," without health benefits, Guild pay and a contracted set term of employment.
