Four major studios have canceled dozens of writers' contracts in a possible
concession that the current television season cannot be saved, the Los Angeles
Times reported Tuesday.
The move means the 2-month old writers strike may also endanger next
season's new shows, the Times said.
January is usually the beginning of
pilot season, when networks order new scripted shows. But the strike leaves
networks without a pool of comedy and drama scripts from which to
20th Century Fox Television, CBS Paramount Network Television,
NBC Universal and Warner Bros. Television told the Times they have terminated
development and production agreements.
