We trace the Show runners getting in on the strike phenomenon back to 30 Rock’s Tina Fey, who began the trend at the start of the strike on Monday. From The New York Times:

”Hollywood writers and the studios that produce the most popular programs on television began tightening the screws on each other Tuesday, the second day of the first industrywide strike in nearly two decades.

”On the writers’ side, some prominent show runners — the writer-producers who fill multiple roles at the helm of television programs — said publicly that they did not intend to perform any of their duties while the writers’ strike continued.”
