WRITERS STRIKE TALKS HALTED

Talks between striking writers and the majors have collapsed, five weeks after scribes walked off the job - with no indication of when negotiations will resume.

Friday night's cratering of negotiations stemmed mostly from disagreements over how to pay writers in the new-media realm. It follows two weeks of bitter and unproductive negotiations and will probably open the door for the Directors Guild of America to launch talks with the AMPTP within the next month.

The strike’s already darkened many TV shows – putting most into re-runs -- and provoked a rain of pink slips. It’s now likely to turn pilot season into a shambles and provoke a round of “force majeure” terminations of deal by the majors.

In a statement issued early Friday evening, the AMPTP said that the negotiating strategy by the WGA is designed to keep stalling the negotiations rather than reach a deal.

"Their Quixotic pursuit of radical demands led them to begin this strike, and now has caused this breakdown in negotiations," the AMPTP asserted. "We hope that the WGA will come back to this table with a rational plan that can lead us to a fair and equitable resolution to a strike that is causing so much distress for so many people in our industry and community."
