The screenwriters' strike leaves rampant damage
Disney is not the first in the entertainment industry to suffer the consequences of the screenwriters' strike. The upcoming season's television schedules of ABC, CBS, The CW, NBC and Fox were conditioned by the unionized writers' hiatus. The late shows also canceled their live broadcasts.
The Tony Awards were the latest to fall victim to the screenwriters' strike.
