Writers Strike Talks Blacked Out

Little progress was reported as negotiations resumed between striking scriptwriters and the major studios. The Los Angeles Times reported, however, it was a positive sign that most members of the Writers Guild of America negotiating team took part in the Nov. 26 talks and that both the Guild and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers agreed to a press blackout. The Guild informed its memberships it will not publicly discuss the negotiations until there is something definitive to announce, the Times said. Television and film writers began their walk out Nov. 5 after failing to reach a new contract with the Alliance. The two sides are in disagreement over how much to pay writers whose work is distributed online and through mobile devices. The strike has shut down production on about 50 television shows and a handful of feature films. Talks continue Nov. 27.
