Hollywood Producers Make New Offer to Writers

by at . Comments

According to MSN and NBC news sources, the Hollywood studios have presented a new and much larger contract offer to striking film and TV writers as of Thursday, and the writers' negotiators have requested a four-day recess to consider it.

The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said in a statement that the negotiations are set to resume next Tuesday, December 4.

The producers said the new offer included payments for work shown online, one of the major sticking point that led to the current writers strike.

Producers say the new offer includes $130 million in additional compensation but did not specify whether that proposed figure was per year, or over the three-year life of a proposed new contract. That we will have to wait and see on.

Grey's Anatoym Season 4 Cast

The Writers Guild of America went on strike November 5 when its last contract expired. Negotiations began anew on Monday after breaking off over a week.

Cross your fingers that a deal between the studios and writers is reached soon, as the slate of finished episodes of Grey's Anatomy is just about wiped out.

We believe (although we're not certain) that Episode 11 (December 13) is the last completed episode of Season Four of Grey's Anatomy.

Yes, I also read somewhere that Episode 11 will not air until the new year. NEW STRIKE INFO (Not good, but I am with the writers, so as long as it takes to get a good deal is fine with me - I'll be back when new episodes resume) With the writers strike in its fourth week, the companies on Thursday put forth what they consider to be a "groundbreaking" proposal -- and the writers have blasted it. See Variety.com and TheHollywoodReporter.com to learn more.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
