Television and film writers picketed for a third day Wednesday throughout Hollywood and New York.

In front of every studio in Burbank – WB, NBC/Universal, Disney, ABC – writers marched back and forth covering each entrance in their red shirts while waving their Writers Guild strike signs high.

The strikers were still in good spirits, too. Chants and cheering could be heard rallying passing cars, trucks, and Vespas to honk their horns in support.

Reports from NPR to the New York Times put entertainers like Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and John Lithgow on the scene striking as writers or supporting their colleagues.
