Jamie Lynn Spears Pregnancy Brings End To Writers Strike


LOS ANGELES, CA. - After seven weeks without any notable progress in negotiations, The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) have reached a preliminary agreement Thursday, ending a writer's strike that cost the American entertainment industry an estimated 80 million dollars. The pregnancy of Jamie Lynn Spears is said to have been the driving force behind the sudden headway in negotiations.

"I got a call from Jay [Leno] at two in the morning," said Nick Counter, current president of the AMPTP. "He told me we needed to meet immediately. I could tell from his voice something big was going on. He was at my front door in 20 minutes and before I knew it I was in a conference room in the middle of the night, pounding coffee and talking with everyone. You could walk into the room and feel it in the air. No one was going anywhere until an agreement was reached. No one was raising their voice. Both sides were finally listening. We even let Carson Daly say something at one point. We weren't about to miss out on the greatest comedic opportunity since Lorenna Bobbit."

"We couldn't just stand to the side in silence while a sixteen year old Spears is pregnant," remarked Bruce McCoy, writer for MadTV. "What if Walter Cronkite had been on strike when Kennedy was shot? We couldn't let that kind of thing happen."
