Huge $70M Settlement In TV Writers Age Discrimination Lawsuit: CAA Lone Holdout

The only reason I was working at 58 was because I was still selling spec scripts, but when I went for writing jobs they took one look at me and I could feel the withdrawal. Facial expressions changed, the atmosphere in the room completely went flat. Here is the thing: They liked my scripts but when they saw me they forgot that and all they could see was this old man. Never mind that the scripts were all written within the past 4 years and two of them had been made and released.

Well, look. You can’t have an adult working in Hollywood. It’s spoils the fun of the talentless children, some of whom got there purely via nepotism. Why, you might know their Daddy or Uncle Shmuel and accidentally mention all the coke you saw spread out on their desk or how you overheard them ordering a bunch of hookers for the weekend. Worst of all, you might actually write about everything you’ve seen.

I am sooooo glad they won.
