I’d rather be writing Season 2 of #TheNightAgent for @netflix rather than picketing them, but all writers need a fair deal before we can resume our work. We create the TV shows and movies that drive billions in profits. Writers deserve their fair share. #UnionStrong pic.twitter.com/aFpcqVqYSO— Shawn Ryan (@ShawnRyanTV) May 5, 2023
