Tony Gilroy announced he will no longer be producing Andor during the writer's strike

Hollywood Reporter:

“I discontinued all writing and writing-related work on Andor prior to midnight, May 1. After being briefed on the Saturday showrunner meeting, I informed [co-chair of the WGA’s negotiating committee] on Sunday morning that I would also be ceasing all non-writing producing functions,” Gilroy said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. 


On Friday afternoon, THR reported that studios including Disney had sent letters to showrunners demanding that they continue their contractually obligated non-writing services amid the strike.
