Picket line noise shuts down 'Cane'


Strike Zone: Latest on WGA talks

Noise and other disruptions caused by a writers picket line has stopped filming at a location being used for the CBS show "Cane."

The shutdown came as about 20 writers chanted, screamed and used a bullhorn outside a cafe near the CBS lot in Studio City.

Tom Hogan, a location manager for the show, says he hired two off-duty Los Angeles police officers in addition to five private security guards to maintain order during the shoot.

He said the filming began hours before the picketers arrived and involved a script that was finished several weeks ago.

After the shoot was stopped, writers cheered and rejoined picketers around the corner at the studio.
