– Bill Maher postpones the return of Real Time
– WGA strike causes delays in various productions
– Maher previously stated he would continue working despite the strike
In a recent change of plans, Bill Maher has decided to delay the return of his popular talk show Real Time, due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike. This decision comes after Maher previously declared that he would continue working even with the strike in effect.
The HBO host shared the news via a social media post, stating that the show’s team would be “standing in solidarity with the strikers.” This decision comes as various TV and streaming productions have been halted due to the labor dispute between the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
The postponement of Real Time with Bill Maher illustrates the ongoing challenges faced by the show while it grapples with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on its production. This change also highlights the challenges faced by many shows and networks during this labor dispute.
