The Real Reason Nailed It! Season 7 Just Shut Down Filming
By FELIX BEHR
“Nailed It! Halloween” has only four episodes total, as Netflix and the show’s production company, Magical Elves, decided to stop filming the season due to a strike by crew members. The protesters were trying to get the companies to sign a contract with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE).
The situation left the show’s future in question since its cancellation lost Netflix massive viewing numbers, but as an unnamed union source told Deadline, the company is “notoriously nonunion.” Unionizing the crew was not the purpose of the strike — instead, the main goal was agreement on the IATSE contract.
IATSE shared the first couple of pages of “a new tentative Basic Agreement” on Twitter, in which they asked for more pay and specific working hours. There were concerns the contract didn’t mention the 14-hour work days or worker’s pension, but the Nailed It! crew still felt it would be best to operate under IATSE.
