The Hollywood writers’ strike has made its way to Atlanta. On Tuesday, Aug. 29, hundreds of members of the local SAG-AFTRA union held a rally to show their solidarity for writers and actors seeking more money and respect in their industry.
The Hollywood writer’s strike began Tuesday, May 2, with SAG-AFTRA later joining the fight in July. Since then, production on nearly every TV and movie set nationwide has been shut down, with release dates being pushed back for major productions.
Georgia has been a major TV and film production hub since 2008, generating billions in revenue for the state.
