Within 48 hours striking screenwriters will vote on a tentative deal reached late last week between their union, Writer's Guild of America, and TV and Film networks and producers. If the rank-and-file vote in favor of the proposed deal, writers could be back to work as early as Tuesday or Wednesday.
Details of the proposed agreement were presented to meetings of Writers in New York and Los Angeles Saturday, and union management will meet again on Sunday before putting the deal to a vote of the membership.
I haven't had a chance to see the terms of the proposed deal, but it stands to reason that Writers will receive a more meaningful share of “new media” revenues than originally proposed by the studios. More details when I see the deal terms.
