The Drew Barrymore Show to Pause Due to Labor Strikes

Instagram Netflix News

Drew Barrymore has decided to delay the premiere of her daytime talk show, “The Drew Barrymore Show,” in response to the ongoing labor strikes involving writers and actors. Barrymore announced on Instagram that she would wait until the labor issues are resolved before resuming the show’s production. Similarly, CBS’ “The Talk” also announced that it would postpone its restart.

Barrymore initially faced criticism for continuing to tape new episodes of her show amid the strikes. However, after listening to feedback from various parties, including her team and the public, she made the decision to halt the show’s premieres. She expressed her sincerest apologies to those she may have hurt with her initial decision and acknowledged the hard work of her team in creating the show.

While “The View,” “Tamron Hall,” “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” and “The Jennifer Hudson Show” resumed production despite the strikes, “The Talk” opted to postpone its restart indefinitely. Talk shows fall under a separate contract known as the Network Code, which allows them to continue production without technically breaking the strike as long as they don’t discuss or promote work covered television, theatrical, or streaming contracts.

The ongoing labor strikes involve the Writers Guild of America, the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents major companies like Disney, Netflix, and Amazon. The strikes have caused disruptions in the entertainment industry, with several shows and events facing postponements or cancellations.

Due to her decision to proceed with her show initially, Barrymore was uninvited as the host of the National Book Awards in November. The organizers cited the resumption of production for “The Drew Barrymore Show” as their reason for rescinding her invitation.
