Heated debate over Writers Guild tentative contract agreement
Monday, March 21st, 2011
The debate is heating up over the new Writers Guild tentative agreement with producers. Yesterday the negotiators for the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reached the tentative agreement after only about two and a half weeks of talking. The producers must have offered a juicy deal with plenty of perks and money for the writers to jump so quick at an offer. That’s not what the critics are saying about this contract deal.
Today the Writers Guild West posted an announcement about the tentative agreement on its website. However, the debate over the agreement began yesterday — and Nikki Finke over on deadline.com has an interesting post on the contract negotiations, the players involved, and the e-mail sent out yesterday by the WGAW. Also, that post has nearly 100 comments about the tentative agreement. Check it out here.
