CRIMINAL MINDS: ED BERNERO JOINS PROTEST
Criminal Minds: Edward Allen Bernero, Co-Exec. Producer of Criminal Minds, has joined the protest against Emmy changes. We should also be protesting the fact that Criminal Minds hasn't gotten an Emmy!!
More than 100 current TV writers are protesting the TV Academy's changes to its primetime telecast format this year.
Top writers such as John Wells ("Southland"), Ron Moore ("Battlestar Galactica"), Victor Fresco ("Better Off Ted"), Ed Bernero ("Criminal Minds"), Carol Mendelsohn ("CSI"), Clyde Phillips ("Dexter"), Doug Ellin ("Entourage"), Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy"), Jason Katims ("Friday Night Lights"), Shonda Rhimes ("Grey's Anatomy"), David Shore ("House"), Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse ("Lost") and others have signed a statement opposing shifting two TV writing categories out of the live Emmy telecast (writing for a dramatic series and writing for a movie/miniseries).
