Time for a new blogathon! I am inviting you to write about the workplace in film and television.
Films and TV shows featuring workers in offices, factories, restaurants, institutions, you name it, I will accept it!
You can be creative about the meaning of “workplace.” For instance, if you want to write about Star Trek or Galaxy Quest as a workplace, have at it.
Any film or TV show, from any area of the world, any era is eligible.
My only rule is no duplicates. As usual, if two people want to write about two different versions of the same story (i.e. The Front Page/His Girl Friday or British version of The Office/American version of The Office) that is fine.
The blogathon will run Friday, August 18 – Sunday, August 20. You may post any day (or earlier, if you wish).
To claim your topic, please request your choice in the comments section below, or contact me on Twitter (@DebbieVee). Include the name and URL of your blog. Then grab one of the banners below, display it on your blog and link it back to this post.
Thanks so much for joining in!
