Hollywood Studios Share Latest Package To End Writers Strike
An alliance of major studios is offering a new deal to Hollywood writers in hopes of ending a
almost a five-month-old strike. The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers is
proposing new terms to the Writers Guild of America (WGA) that include a wage increase the studios
claim is the highest in 35 years. The alliance says the deal would also include some residual
pay, and a guarantee that written material produced by artificial intelligence will not be
considered literary material. The writers in the U.S. film and TV industry have been on strike
since early May. If this gets approved by WGA then hopefully it'll be soon after that SAG/AFTRA may also
be able to strike a deal.
Cope's prediction is late September.
