The writers of "Sesame Street" have authorized a strike if they don't reach a contract by tomorrow. Thirty-five WGA members are asking Sesame Workshop for industry standard raises, improvements to residuals and more. Picketing outside the New York City office could start as soon as next Wednesday. "Millions of parents and families around the world are going to have a lot of questions," WGA East President Lisa Takeuchi Cullen said. "They might ask why the bosses at Sesame Workshop are ignoring their company's own messages of kindness and fairness." Variety has the full story.

Update: The "Sesame Street" team reached a deal last Friday to avert a strike. It offers writers minimums for animation and new media programs, paid parental leave, protections against AI and new media residuals. "'S' truly is for Solidarity," the WGA Sesame Workshop Negotiating Committee said in a statement. Here's more from Variety.
