Beau Willimon '95

June 20, 2019

Beau Willimon '95 was featured in Variety on 06.20.19, in a story about his run for President of Writers Guild East: "Beau Willimon, the playwright and showrunner who launched Netflix’s House of Cards, is running unopposed for re-election to a two-year term as president of the Writers Guild of America East. Willimon also ran unopposed in 2017 to succeed Michael Winship. The WGA East announced a total of 24 candidates Thursday for its top officer posts and Council seats. Results will be announced Sept. 20. The announcement comes with the WGA locked in a heated standoff with Hollywood agents over the issues of how agents represent WGA members. The guild required on April 13 that members fire their agents if the agents had not signed a Code of Conduct, which bans agents from taking packaging fees and prohibits agencies from owning production affiliates."
