(April 27, 2001) -- The first of the Hollywood entertainment community strike deadlines is fast approaching. The Writers Guild of America says it will stop work May 1 if it can't get a new and improved contract. Among it concerns, the WGA wants residuals for syndication airings of TV, something some actors and producers already receive. On June 30, the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Radio & Television Artists is set to walk as well. -- Wayne Friedman
