AMPTP Debuts Digital Plan During Labor Talks

In what looks like a watershed moment in negotiations between the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers and the Writers Guild of America, the producers offered a new-media plan that they claim will add $130 million in compensation for writers.

The producers’ plan was offered on the fourth day of negotiations, which had been added to the three days of talks originally planned.

The plan touches on new media, including “streaming, content made for new media and programming delivered over digital broadcast channels,” and the value of the plan is estimated at more than $130 million on top of “the $1.3 billion writers already receive each year,” the AMPTP said.

According to the AMPTP, the WGA asked for time to review the plan, and talks will resume on Tuesday, Dec. 4.

The WGA was not available for immediate response.
