Los Angeles – The IATSE has confirmed that it is on strike against the reality series, “The Biggest Loser,” and its production entities, Reveille Productions, 25/7 Productions and 3 Ball Productions. This top rated show for NBC is now filming its tenth season. The work action follows a vote by 100% of the production crew members to support the IA. AFTRA and DGA already have agreements with the production.
IA International President Matthew D. Loeb said, “This is a top-rated prime-time television show, and the crew remains unified. The strike is the result of a unanimous decision by members of the production crew that they get a contract similar to others covering these types of productions, and we are resolute in getting it for them.”
