Fox plans TV cutbacks<br />

Maybe the long standing TV writers strike may coming to an end soon, but does this mean that the studios will be going right back into full production? You would have thought so, but it would seem that the execs who run the studios are taking the opportunity to make a few savings.

It is estimated that the cost of the writers could be something in the region of £254 million obviously this is going to be spread around the different studios, but at the end of the day a loss is loss and the studios are looking at cutting back on making any new pilot shows.

This writers strike may have been going on for three months, but with nothing being produced, the studios are looking to move forward and get rid of some of the waste in system, which does not sound too good for the many people employed by the studios.

During the strike there have been many development deals scrapped, these would have normally cost the studios around £250,000 to £500,000 per deal just for the writing, with no new pilots hitting the scenes it will be interesting to see what replaces them.
