Day 3 of the Writers Guild of America strike against Hollywood studios saw some L.A. showers, but strong turnouts continued at 10 Los Angeles locations, as well as Silvercup Studios and Cherette Studios in New York City.

Much of the conversation in LA took place at Wednesday night’s WGA West meeting in Thiran Auditorium, where guild leaders discussed the status of the strike and sought support from other Hollywood unions and guilds. It came on the heels of a similar meeting held by WGA East in New York.
