WHO:
Writers Guild of America West President Patric Verrone
Filmnut host Jeff Schubert
Viewers from allover the world to send instant messages to guest and host throughout the show.

WHAT:    
Verrone recently testified in the ongoing congressional hearings on net neutrality.
He will discuss the issues and what has occurred since his testimony. Verrone is recently quoted as saying, "The only thing bigger than corporations in this country is the government, so we think we have to make clear to legislators that we need somebody making sure that that pipe [by which information travels from one computer to another] is neutral."

Filmnut is a show that covers all aspects of film making. Schubert has interviewed well-known industry greats such as Oscar winning writer Bob Moresco ("Crash"), writer/director James Gunn ("Slither," "Scooby Doo," "Dawn Of The Dead"), "Heroes" writing/producing team of Adam Armus and Kay Foster. Other notables include: "Donnie Darko" director of photography, President of IATSE Local 600 Steven Poster, Oscar winning makeup artist Jeff Dawn, Emmy winning director Michael Lembeck, actor Gregory Itzin ("24") and "Kill Bill" stunt coordinator Keith Adams among many others.

WHY:
According to Schubert, "This is a genuine issue that affects millions of people around the world in terms of how they will continue to use and have access to the internet. People need to know both sides of the issue and make informed decisions. None of us paid attention to oil & gas over the years and see how that is working out? I'm looking forward to good questions on both sides of the debate."

Broadcast live 8:00PM Pacific time, 11:00PM Eastern time
