American Guild disputes

Last week the Writers Guilds of America issued guidance to their members on two disputes, with House Of Payne (which fired four writers because of their efforts to organise there) and with FremantleMedia over a new comedy-variety show featuring Ozzy Osbourne and his family.
WGA East and West members may not write for the Osbourne variety show (working title: The Osbournes: Loud and Dangerous). Any members who perform writing services on that show do so at their own peril as they will be violating WGA Working Rule 8 and could be fined up to 100% of their compensation for that work.
