Amen. Some networks would cancel shows just from all the headaches of it all.

I'm siding with PP on this one.
I think negotiating a per-episode deal is a bad idea in a format like this where one expensive episode will be sandwiched between many cheap and under-budget ones. A couple of expensive episodes out of 40 for one series should not be worth permanently putting all of their workers out of their jobs.
If they could turn this into a solid success there would be room to negotiate wage increases down the line. Destabilizing it when it's just off the ground is silly.
What the unions are doing is SHAMEFUL.
