Possible Return of Writers by Monday!?

9 02 2008

The producers are saying that an agreement may be reached over the weekend between themselves and the WGA, who have been on strike for three months. Even further, several late night talk shows have told their entire staffs to be ready to come in on monday. This comes from the NY Times by way of the almighty Google:

“On Saturday leaders of the Writers Guild of America West and the Writers Guild of America East will hold informational meetings with their members in Los Angeles and New York. If reaction to the settlement proposals are sufficiently positive, the guilds’ boards could end the three-month walkout and allow television and movie writers to return to their laptops even before formal ratification.”

This is awesome news. I’m really glad that both sides are finally willing to meet. Hopefully both sides will make reasonable concessions, as that is the only way anything will ever get moving again. Throughout the whole ordeal of the WGA strike, I’ve definitely sympathized more towards the writers, but to be unwilling to even meet with the opposite side for months is pretty ridiculous. I’m sure we’ll have more news on this as it progresses. Keep your fingers crossed, friends.
