Writers picket outside the production offices of the reality show America's Next Top Model.

A reality show drama is playing out on the picket line. A dozen writers for America's Next Top Model, the hit reality show, are on strike.

According to the twelve Top Model staffers and the Writers Guild of America, the strike shines a spotlight on an ongoing effort to unionize reality TV. Indeed, without the writers' efforts, Model host Tyra Banks and other reality show stars might be at a loss for words.
