Just thought I’d let you know that the crew of New Adventures of Old Christine just got checks of $1,000. The card said: “To Our Old Christine Friends: We miss you and hope we’ll be together soon. Keep the faith. With love from, The Writers, The Actors, The Director.” The Christmas gift was also nice: a Patagonia parka. As an insider told me, “While none of this makes up for the hardship of the strike, I’m proud to be working for a showrunner who shows such generosity, even when her show hasn’t yet become a big hit. And Julia Louis Dreyfus was on the picket line the very first day. She even went to that Desperate Housewives location shoot and helped disrupt Eva Longoria’s scene.”
