At the request of the Writers Guild of America, more than 7,000 writers have fired their agents. The Guild says the agents are making money through packaging, and that it's a conflict of interest.

Alex Cohen talked to Jonathan Handel, Contributing Editor, The Hollywood Reporter, who explained how this all started and how the writers are managing to get work after firing their agents during hiring season.

“As I talk to showrunners, what I’m hearing is people anticipated the problem, they anticipated that there was going to be this dispute, and they had their list of writers ready,” Handel said.
