Union Strike Halts Production on Fashion Star

Over the weekend, NBC producers canceled the live taping of an episode from Fashion Star's second season, after nearly 70 of the series' staffers picketed the show. Unionized workers are protesting stalled negotiations regarding their contract for pension monies, benefits — and, quite possibly in Fashion Star's case, additional insurance against pyrotechnics and glitter bombs gone wild. With that contract not yet in place, future episodes might also be delayed.
