“After a day of twists and turns, Hollywood has dodged a bullet,” reports Deadline.com in a piece posted at 1:15 a.m., Pacific time.
The story, by veteran Hollywood labor reporter David Robb and Dominic Patten, continues, “A threatened writers strike was averted early this morning when the [Writers Guild of America] and management’s [Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers] reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year film and TV contract.”
The piece adds, “Details are still sketchy, but the agreement is expected to save the WGA’s ailing health plan and provide more money and protections for writers of short-order TV shows. The deal now goes to the WGA West’s board and the WGA East’s council for approval, and then to the guilds’ members for ratification.”
