[00:00:27] ASHLEY RAY: Welcome to TV, I say with Ashley Ray, your go-to podcast for discovering what to watch on TV and getting behind the scenes insight from the people who make the shows you love. And today I want to clarify because when I say, “people who make the shows you love,” I’m not talking about studio CEOs, okay? I’m not talking about David Zaslav or whatever. I am talking about writers, writers, writers! They write the shows you love. It’s the first thing that has to happen before something happens. But you’ve probably already heard TV and movie writers are currently on strike against the major Hollywood studios. So, to help give you all the lowdown on what’s going on with the Writer’s Guild strike, I invited two super talented TV writers on the pod, Niccole Thurman, and Nick Wiger. Welcome to TV Club.   [00:01:10] NICK WIGER: Hi.   [00:01:11] NICCOLE THURMAN: Hello.   [00:01:11] NICK WIGER: Thanks for having me
