Katharine McPhee: Son Rennie Is a 'Good Combination' of Me and David Foster“He’s still not crawling but has six teeth so that’s a pretty big [deal]. I mean, for a 7-month-old, it’s kind of a lot. It’s like a mouth full of teeth,” McPhee, 37, exclusively told Us Weekly on Thursday, October 7, while attending a private Zumba class. The event, led by instructor Jeimy Bueno at New World Stages in New York City, was in honor of World Mental Health Day, which is on Sunday, October 10.
About 60,000 film and TV workers - among them grips, hairstylists and designers - are being told to 'prepare to walk off' sets next week if major studios don't agree to a wage hike and longer breaks between shoots, among other demands.
The strike would pause hundreds of productions across the United States andif the studios don't agree to substantial changes by Monday at 12.01am.
The strike date was announced Wednesday morning by Matthew Loeb, president of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), who said he would keep meeting with the studios' union to reach an agreement.

'However, the pace of bargaining doesn't reflect any sense of urgency,' Loeb said in a statement. 'Without an end date, we could keep talking forever. Our members deserve to have their basic needs addressed now.'
The strike would affect TV shows such as Succession, Search Party and Billions and the feature film sequel to Black Panther, all of which are currently filming inand .
The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, the studios' union, responded to the IATSE's strike date: 'There are five whole days left to reach a deal, and the studios will continue to negotiate in good faith in an effort to reach an agreement for a new contract that will keep the industry working.'
A text circulating among IATSE members this week, and published by industry blog, reads: 'Leadership advised me to tell members to get your kits tidy this week. Be prepared to work on Monday but also be prepared to picket/walk off.'

On the Market! Kanye West Lists Wyoming Ranch Amid Kim Kardashian Divorce 2 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Ups and Downs Through the Years Read article The rapper, 44, put the 3,888-acre estate on the market Monday, October 11, for $11 million, which is reportedly $3 million more than he paid for the home two years ago. The Cody, Wyoming ranch, known as “Monster Lake,” is a “once in a lifetime property,” according to the DBW Realty listing, which features an equine facility, livestock corrals, hay meadows and a go-kart track.
Last week, 98 percent of eligible members across the country gave Loeb the power to call a strike if it came down to that, an option that Loeb exercised on Wednesday.
The union has complained of 'unsafe' working hours, 'unlivable' wages and insufficient meal breaks and time off between workdays and weekends. The issues have only gotten worse as Hollywood ramps up production after the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered most sets.
FilmLA, the official film office of the City and County of Los Angeles, found that on-location filming from April through June surpassed the 2019, pre-pandemic quarterly average, meaning Hollywood is largely back in business.
A total of 9,791 shoot days were recorded across all categories in the second quarter of 2021, increasing a whopping 40 percent since March.
The rise was largely driven by TV dramas and reality shows, the bread and butter of on-location Hollywood filming.

The IATSE also wants its workers on 'new media' projects, which stream on platforms like Netflix, to get paid the same as workers in projects that air on TV or show in theaters.
The technicians' union is seeking a 10-hour turnaround between shifts for all workers and a 54-hour turnaround on weekends, according to. They also want increased meal penalties, as a way to force productions to stop for lunch.
The union has been trying to hash it out with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents major studios like Walt Disney, Warner Bros., Netflix, Apple and Amazon, according to the.
'It is incomprehensible that the AMPTP, an ensemble that includes media mega-corporations collectively worth trillions of dollars, claims it cannot provide behind-the-scenes crews with basic human necessities like adequate sleep, meal breaks, and living wages,' the technicians' union said last month.

Senior Tory MP calls for face-to-face meetings with constituents to be paused in wake of Amess killing
A senior Conservative MP has called for a temporary pause in face-to-face meetings between parliamentarians and their constituents following the killing of Sir David Amess on Friday. © PA Police and forensics experts at the church where Sir David Amess was killed on Friday Tobias Ellwood, who was hailed as a hero for his attempts to save the life of PC Keith Palmer during the Westminster terror attack in 2017, said physical engagements should be halted until the Home Office has completed its review of MPs' security.
'Worse, management does not appear to even recognize our core issues as problems that exist in the first place.'
On October 4, the IATSE said that 90 percent of 60,000 eligible voters cast ballots, with more than 98 percent in support of strike authorization.
The union represents 150,000 crew members in the US and, but not all are affected by the latest demands.
This is the first time in the union's 128-year history that it's authorized a strike, according to.
'The members have spoken loud and clear,' Loeb said in a statement last week after his members voted to authorize the strike, but before he settled on a date.
'This vote is about the quality of life as well as the health and safety of those who work in the film and television industry.'
Loeb added: 'Our people have basic human needs like time for meal breaks, adequate sleep, and a weekend. For those at the bottom of the pay scale, they deserve nothing less than a living wage.″
In September, the IATSE asked its members to authorize a strike during an emergency virtual town hall.
The decisive move from union officials came after four months of increasingly embittered negotiations between the union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
Elisabeth II: Intimate family photos unveiled
© King Jacob / PA Wire / Abaca Elizabeth II and his family are revealed in a series of exclusive photos broadcast by the " Daily Mail ", Monday, October 18th. The site shared many Christmas cards, dating back to 1998 and 2018, sent by the Queen of England and his deceased husband, the Prince Philip , to a loyal employee of the Palace of Sandringham. Each of these cards is signed by the hand of the royal couple and accompanied by a note on their part, wishing happy holidays.
After months of back-and-forth, both bodies failed to come to a consensus on a contract.
IATSE members say they've reached this point due to a confluence of unsatisfactory circumstances, like being forced to undergo intensive production schedules following the lapse in work brought on by the pandemic, and a new climate where workers are willing to share negative experiences through social media.
Workers in the historic Hollywood crafts union are fed-up with paltry pay and marathon workdays that have only worsened after workers returned to their respective crafts after the pandemic.
They're seeking stricter penalties on their employers for missed meal breaks, more substantial rest periods, and greater compensation for streaming projects and weekend assignments.
IATSE members also are striving to increase wages for crafts that have contractual minimum hourly rates of less than $18 an hour, as well as increased contributions to health and pension plans.
The union previously revealed that producers like Netflix, Amazon, Warner Bros. and Walt Disney refused to respond to its latest proposals after the union's contract expired earlier this month.
'This failure to continue negotiating can only be interpreted one way,' the IATSE said in a statement last week. 'They simply will not address the core issues we have repeatedly advocated for from the beginning.'
The contract affects more than 43,000 of workers in the film and entertainment industry who work in live theater, motion picture and television production, trade shows and exhibitions, television broadcasting, and concerts - as well as the equipment and construction shops that support those industries.
Jennifer Garner looks cozy picking up son from swim lesson in LA
Jennifer Garner opted for a comfortable ensemble to pick up her son Samuel from his swim lesson in Santa Monica on Tuesday afternoon. The actress, 49, wore a white sweater covered with flowers, brown pants and tan slippers.Garner donned a pair of dark sunglasses to shade her eyes and a blue surgical mask.The Daredevil actress held her son's hand as the two walked across the street. Samuel wore a red polo shirt, brown pants and sneakers. He had a blue sweater tied around his waist and held a blue lunchbox in his right hand. Samuel is one of three children the star shares with Ben Affleck.
The union is also in the midst of negotiating another contract, which affects 17,000 of their members working outside of the Los Angeles and New York regions.
Studios, however, have so far not been receptive to the union's demands - citing costs they have racked up as a result of the pandemic.
They are instead looking for concessions from the union, such as less pay for work on streaming shows than for shows that air on TV, eliminated financial penalties for missed meal breaks, and an increase in the number of hours worked that are needed to qualify for health benefits.
In a statement, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said it had 'listened and addressed' many of the union's demands, including increasing minimum pay rates for certain types of new-media productions and footing the bill for a nearly $400 million pension and health plan deficit.
'When we began negotiations with the IATSE months ago, we discussed the economic realities and the challenges facing the entertainment industry as we work to recover from the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic,' the organization said.
'In choosing to leave the bargaining table to seek a strike authorization vote, the IATSE leadership walked away from a generous comprehensive package.'
The strike gives union leaders more wiggle-room in talks with studios, as they now have the legal ability to cease work on productions at a crucial time.
Producers, on the other hand, are fervently attempting to restructure and remarket various projects delayed by the pandemic and to reallocate resources to now-surging streaming platforms.
