Call to action: write a letter!

Tori said it in her review. The Office’s Michael Schur and Jen Celotta said it in the chat room. And now I am officially appealing to Tallyheads and Office fans everywhere —

The best thing you can do to support the writers during the WGA strike is to write a letter. Specifically, write a letter to Jeff Zucker, President and CEO of NBC/Universal.

Be articulate. Be polite. Tell Mr. Zucker that you’re an Office fan and you want your show back. That you won’t watch any replacement programming until The Office returns.

Check out various Tallyhead letters in the comments below.

Let’s get the entire Office staff back where they belong, doing what they do best: making our favorite show.

Mail letters to:
Jeff Zucker
30 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY 10112

P.S. The Office staff has heard every other idea that you guys have had — from boycotting DunderMifflinInfinity.com, to not watching The Office online, to turning off your TV altogether. Again, Michael Schur says “we can’t quite figure out what the right move is with digital media stuff for right now, but we do know that writing letters is good.” As for a DMI boycott, I spoke to another Office writer who says, “DMI has nothing to do with the Writers’ Guild strike. The strike is only about scripted content, so keep on participating in DMI and reading the character blogs. It’s all we’ve got right now!”
