WGAw rally for reality writers

About 800 Writers Guild of America west members joined a rally yesterday in support of reality show writers in dispute with producers over union recognition, rates and rights, reports Carl DiOrio in The Hollywood Reporter.
Top primetime scribes Marc Cherry ("Desperate Housewives") and Shawn Ryan ("The Shield") were among those addressing the gathering in midtown's Pan Pacific Park, which was followed by a march by the hundreds in attendance past CBS' nearby Los Angeles headquarters.

"The truth of quote-unquote reality shows is that some of them require people to write them," Cherry told a reporter. "I know the networks would like to avoid that reality because it costs them money. But to me, it's just a simple matter of fairness."
