Star David Duchovny told Deadline that there are so many problems to solve, especially the AI. “I think the powers that be have a lot to do right now trying to figure it out, kicking the box with the AI stuff. What is he capable of? These are philosophical questions,” he said.
Duchovny also highlighted flux residues. “We’ve always worked in a company that rewarded success and didn’t want failure. Now we have these opaque streamers that kind of tell us what’s a success and what’s a failure and I wouldn’t trust an employer to tell me how well I’m doing,” he added. .
He was joined at the reunion by the likes of Annabeth Gish, who played FBI Special Agent Monica Reyes and Thomas Schnauz, who wrote on the show before becoming executive producer of You better call Saul.
“It’s an inflection point and we’re all here really fighting for what we deserve. As someone who endured and lived through the golden age, the golden age is sadly The residual pool can no longer carry us like it used to and it has to change,” Gish told Deadline.
Schnauz added: “When I started I could make a living. We had 22 TV episodes that I was working on and getting residuals for. Now it’s smaller pieces and shorter pieces and mini pieces. For novice writers, it is impossible to survive in this city under the current conditions.
Schnauz pointed to the heat in Los Angeles, with temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees in Burbank. Some actors and writers were helped by Sno Balls courtesy of actor and comedian Kym Whitley outside of Warner Bros. Discovery.
Schnauz’s You better call Saul colleague Bob Odenkirk was among those outside the flash studio, which had hundreds of people walking the lines.

Sussman, who played Stuart Bloom on the long-running CBS sitcom becoming a series regular in season six, said the big issue for him was residue. “I’ve known it’s been untenable for years,” he told Deadline. “I was surprised that it took so long for there to be a major strike. I hope the strike will end quickly as I fear it will cause great harm to the entertainment industry from which it will not be able to recover.
Sarah Sokolovic, who starred in series Big little lies, homeland And The good wife, was also away from Disney and told Deadline he was moving back to Wisconsin to find a job.
“There was a time when I was traveling out of the country. I had to forward my mail to my mother. She was opening my mail, helping me with deposits, physical checks at the time. They did not have direct deposit. She opens a check and says, “Sarah, that’s three hundred.” It actually costs more to send them by post.” The truth is that we are angry, frustrated. It kills our spirits. I had to take some very hard knocks, especially in the last two years. And one of them was leaving the town I was living in and going back to my home state of Wisconsin and getting a steady job. I’m not ashamed of that, because I’ve worked with some really, really wonderful people at this job. But the thing is, I worked hard to at least be able to pursue an acting career. This shouldn’t happen, should it? “, she said.
