Is the months-long Writers’ Guild strike against the major studios actually headed for a settlement this week?
Maybe so. Unnamed sources are mumbling to the Times and Nikki Finke that the writers and producers may have hacked out agreements on the biggest chunks of their disagreement over whether writers deserve a cut of revenue earned from H’wood content posted online.
About damn time. And let’s hope the guild didn’t have to bend over too far to make everyone feel happy in time for the Oscars. I can think of far better things to cave over.
FWIW, United Hollywood, the unofficial strike-tracking blog, is counseling against over-exuberance.
