The Writers Guild of America and Hollywood’s top studios reached a tentative agreement Sunday that could end one of the longest strikes in entertainment industry history.
“WGA has reached a tentative agreement with the AMPTP,” the guild said in a statement “This was made possible by the enduring solidarity of WGA members and extraordinary support of our union siblings who joined us on the picket lines for over 146 days.”
The strike began on May 2, lasting nearly 150 days, forcing talk shows, and other productions to halt on big streaming services such as Disney and Netflix. Union members will need to agree to the terms and formally vote to end the strike.
While the writer’s strike could be ending, the Hollywood actors will continue their strike until SAG-AFTRA reaches a new deal with the studios as well but neither side has began talks.
