A film crew in Oklahoma City on the set of a movie adaptation of BlazeTV host Steve Deace's book, " A Nefarious Plot," has gone on strike, demanding that the production company recognize union representation for its crew members. The moviemakers have accused the involved out-of-state union of making false claims about their conduct, and of using "mob type tactics" against non-union workers.

About 40 workers walked off the set and stopped production on "Nefarious" Monday, forming a picket line to get the California-based production company, Nefarious Film LLC, to recognize the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees as a collective bargaining agent for the crew. The workers are also demanding health and retirement benefits in their contracts. The strike has continued into Thursday.
