However, we fully understand, respect and support his decision to resign in light of his health issues. We are fortunate to be able to access his production skills and experience via his newly inked independent production arrangement with the Company. We have a highly experienced and seasoned management team and board of advisors who I am confident will continue to successfully lead Writers' Group during this transition. We want to thank John for all his contributions to our company and wish him a swift return to improved health," concluded Mr. Mitchell.
