Writer's Strike update..... Since the negotiations between the WGA and AMPTP have broken down, it appears that the writer's new strategy is to make separate deals with production companies. As you know, the first of such agreements just recently occurred with David Letterman's WorldWide Pants. According to The New York Post, they are currently in talks with United Artists. See the brief article below. Moonlight fans are more than ready to make a deal! :)
UNITED ARTISTS CLOSE TO DEAL WITH WRITERS GUILD
By HOLLY M. SANDERS and ZACHERY KOUWE
Tom Cruises' United Artists is close to a deal with the Writers Guild of America that would allow striking scribes to get back to work on projects commissioned by the studio, sources told The Post.
The tentative deal is said to mirror a similar pact David Letterman's Worldwide Pants production company recently signed with the union, clearing the way for writers to work on talk-show host's "Late Show."
If a deal is reached, United Artists, a division of MGM, would become the first notable movie company to come to terms with the writers.
