Writers Guild Postpones FremantleMedia Rally

The Writers Guild of America West called off a planned demonstration against FremantleMedia Wednesday due to the wildfires in Southern California. The union said it would reschedule the event for a later date.

WGAW has been stumping for better working conditions for game-show/reality workers. FremantleMedia is one of the biggest names in both of those genres, with American Idol, The Price Is Right and Family Feud among its productions.
