Backstage | Hollywood writers’ strike, Old Oak, and Boiling Point | Ents & Arts News

Welcome to Backstage, the TV and film podcast from Sky News.

On this week’s Backstage, hosts Claire Gregory, Bethany Minelle and Stevie Wong discuss the end to the strike by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and what that might mean for Hollywood production while actors remain on the picket line.

Nadiya Hussain of Bake Off fame has a new cooking show, Nadiya’s Simple Spices (BBC), and tells Claire about the influence of her family when cooking.

Director Ken Loach discusses the US writers’ strike ending – and his latest film The Old Oak, which tells the story of a former mining village in northeast England that becomes the new location for Syrian refugees.

Plus, the team reviews new series Boiling Point (BBC), the Taylor Swift Eras Tour film, and The Boys’ spin-off Gen V (Prime Video).
