No More Writer's Cramp -- TV Writers Get 'Congrats!' Gift from Comedian-Turned-CEO to Go Along with New Contract
TRUMBULL, Conn., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Writers for hit TV series "The West Wing," "The Sopranos," "Frasier" and two other shows can endorse larger checks and write next season's scripts in greater comfort now that they have a new contract and ergonomic pens on their desks. Aaron Sorkin, Joe Keenan, Terrance Winter and other staff writers were sent personal letters of congratulations and Dr. Grip pens from comedian-turned-CEO Ron Shaw, president of Pilot Pen Corporation of America. Shaw wrote to the writers of his five favorite TV shows, as well as members of the Writers Guild of America negotiating committee. Shaw said he included Dr. Grips as a gesture of appreciation for the pleasure their writing brings to so many -- and as a precaution against writer's cramp. Dr. Grip is the only pen to receive the Arthritis Foundation's "Commendation for Ease-of-Use." Shaw has first-hand experience with show business's finances. Throughout the Fifties, he performed as a comedian in Miami and the Catskill Mountains, opening for Dean Martin and Liberace and appearing with stars like Rosemary Clooney and Jimmy Durante. "Georgie Jessel told me that if I ever got married before I hit it big, I should quit the business and get a real job," Shaw said. "That's how I became a pen salesman." Quitting show business wasn't such a bad decision. Under Shaw's leadership, Pilot Pen grew from $1 million to $200 million in 25 years. Staff writers for the following shows received Shaw's congratulations and Dr. Grips: "Frasier," "Gideon's Crossing," "Law & Order," "The Sopranos" and "The West Wing."
