The grueling Hollywood writers' strike that virtually shut down TV and film production ended more than a year ago. But this month's campaign for the top posts at the Writers Guild of America, West is reviving the painful memories and internal dissent prompted by that five-month walkout, the longest in movie history. Winners in the current voting--which ends Thursday--will help chart the course for the guild's next round of negotiations with management in 1992.

The current leaders of the Writers Guild of America, West were voted back into office late last week, suggesting that the union's membership was overwhelmingly satisfied with the outcome of last year's grueling, five-month-long strike. Incumbent president George Kirgo won with 1,275 votes--65% of the ballots cast--while challenger Burt Prelutsky received 584 votes and L. Travis Clark received 118.

Twenty-one dissident members of the striking Writers Guild of America on Thursday asked the National Labor Relations Board to invalidate guild rules that restrict their ability to work. The request, if granted, would clear the way for them to resign active status in the union and return to work, while keeping some guild benefits, including pension and health benefits. It threatened to split the 9,000-member guild in the 19th week of its strike against movie and television producers.

A Los Angeles entertainment company with plans of producing "The Sagon Penn Story" miniseries for television sent two writers to San Diego this week to interview Penn and other principals in the controversial case. Penn, a 25-year-old black man, was acquitted of the murder of one police officer and the attempted murders of another officer--whom he ran over with a patrol car--and a civilian police observer in two highly publicized trials, the second of which ended in July.

His new series, "Sister, Sister," begins this spring on ABC
My wife, Daphne Maxwell Reid, agreed to attend the gala award ceremony only if I promised not to get grumpy and start bemoaning the fact that few blacks would be involved in the event either as nominees or presenters. "After all," she said, "this is cable and not everyone can get BET." She shoved some antacid tablets in her cute little gold purse and pushed me toward the door. Thanks to Sinbad, who co-hosted, the event began on an upbeat note.
