The writer’s strike is only in its second week, but it’s already starting to have ripple effects across Disney as it’s been revealed by Kristin Newman on social media, that post-production has shut down on the upcoming Freeform series, “While You Were Breeding”, which she is the showrunner for.

“While You Were Breeding” follows Kacey, single for the first time in her 30s, as she escapes her fast-paced life in Los Angeles to see the world. From culture clash to vacation romances, this internationally set dramedy is a globetrotting journey of self-discovery that will inspire the wanderlust inside everyone.  Kristin Newman has previously worked on “That 70s Show”, “Chuck”, “How I Met Your Mother”, “Galavant”, and “The Muppets”.

In Kristin’s social media post, she explained why the show was being delayed:

The hardest thing about being a showrunner during a strike is wondering if you’re the only schmuck furloughing all of your crew and potentially harming your career and/or show by halting work, so I wanted to say publicly that we shut down post production on the show that means more to me than anything I’ve ever made today. It uses voice over, which is generally straight from, like, my journal and/or soul, so it’s impossible to edit without writing. The air date is being pushed from this August to sometime in 2024 and it’s incredibly painful but I want this strike to be as short as humanly possible and that only happens if we really commit and all do this together.

I also want to acknowledge Freeform, who chose to do what this entire strike is about — value the voice of the writer/creator — and push pause until I can finish this thing we all care about and have worked so hard on properly. It was the right thing to do. #wgastrike #whileyouwerebreeding

It’s unknown how long this writer’s strike is going to last for, the previous one in 2007 ran for one hundred days, but hopefully, the studios and Writers Guild Of America can make an agreement to give the writers a better deal, and post-production can resume.
