Dancing With The Stars Season 32 Premiere – Pushed Back?
There are many questions about scripted shows and reality shows nearly avoiding the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
Drew Barrymore became an online target when she announced she was moving forward with production with her show.
She quickly changed her mind when she got backlash on social media. Drew even released a video apology explaining that she didn’t understand the controversy behind her decision at first.
Many of ABC’s reality shows are returning this fall. Some may backtrack on their decision since they also use writers.
There have been questions about DWTS Season 32. Some fans wonder if the show will push back production due to the strikes.
There have been some concerns about the show. Parade shared an update on the status of Dancing with the Stars Season 32. They revealed how the show narrowly avoided the strike rules.
“Variety shows, reality series, and game shows are covered under the SAG-AFTRA National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting, which is separate from the film and TV collective bargaining agreement that is being negotiated. So, there is no problem there,” the Parade report reveals.
As they say in Hollywood, the show will go on. DWTS Season 32 will air as scheduled next week.
Even though they perform live to written music, the show isn’t violating any striking rules. However, there is still controversy involved with the show.
DWTS Season 32 – Controversy
The contestants for DWTS Season 32 said they’re aware of the current situation. Former professional dancer Cheryl Burke told Variety that she’s against the idea of the show halting production until the strike is over.
The other professional dancers haven’t spoken out about this decision. They probably don’t want to stir up more controversy.
Jamie Lynn Spears revealed that she will donate her salary to the striking unions. In her interview with Good Morning America, she revealed that she was given the opportunity to give back.
Jamie supports the strike and will put her earnings from the show to good use. She will continue to donate her salary weekly to the unions.
