What's Coming To TV This Fall: Strike Edition

Hey all you streaming fiends, 

We hope you’re having an awesome summer gobbling up all of the tasty content coming from your 18 different streaming services. 

As you may have heard, writers and actors across the country are abandoning their jobs as stewards of entertainment because they’re greedy little piggies who believe they’re entitled to something they’re calling a “living wage.” 

But fear not, because the streaming overlords don’t make media for the money, they make it because they care about their viewers. So strike or no strike, they’re committed to bringing fresh content to all you thirsty, insatiable content guzzlers. 

Check out what’s coming to screens this fall, no talent necessary.
