The Wrap-Up Podcast: What an IATSE Strike Would Mean

Episode 54: Plus more fallout from Dave Chappelle’s Netflix comedy special

This week on “TheWrap-Up,” hosts Sharon Waxman and Lawrence Yee talk about the looming IATSE strike deadline that may bring Hollywood productions to a standstill.

TheWrap’s film reporter Jeremy Fuster joins the discussion to talk about which productions would be affected by a strike, and which would be exempt.

Then, a discussion about the internal fallout Netflix has faced over Dave Chappelle’s latest Netflix special, “The Closer.” CEO Ted Sarandos has defended the special, but trans employees and their allies have vocally dissented, with a walkout planned for next week.

And a new segment for the show: “Succession” Obsession. TheWrap’s Zo Hazen and Ben Svetkey join Sharon for a lively discussion about the HBO drama that returns this weekend, and the characters they love to hate.

And finally, a chat with Kevin Mayer, Tom Staggs, Faiza Saeed and Jeff Sagansky about the new era of Hollywood mega-mergers and SPACS. . The panel was part of TheWrap’s TheGrill 2021, which you can learn more about here.
