Writers, Producers Reach Deal
No longer the subject of internet speculation via Michael Eisner, or fervent denial by Nikki Fenke - it's official, a deal has been reached between the WGA and AMPTP. Here's the story from Variety:
The WGA has finalized its tentative agreement with the majors and will present details of the pact to members today in meetings in Los Angeles and New York.Click here to read the full story.
Those meetings — set for the Crowne Plaza in Gotham and the Shrine in Los Angeles — are expected to serve as a barometer for WGA leaders to determine whether the deal’s acceptable to the 10,500 striking writers.
The WGA West board of directors and the WGA East Council will meet Sunday to formally endorse the contract. And writers could be back at work as early Monday, depending on whether the WGA’s ruling bodies decide whether to end the three-month strike at those Sunday meetings.
