CHICAGO — After 146 days, it appears the end of the writer’s strike is almost here.
The Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract this weekend. The final language still has to be worked out & WGA membership still has to vote on it, but it appears the strike is coming to an end.
Writers received the support of many around Hollywood in their quest for a new contract, which would include protections against the use of artificial intelligence, and staffing, along with more compensation for streaming content.
Zayd Dohrn, a screenwriter, playwright, and a professor at Northwestern Univesity’s School of Communication, also serves as a WGA strike captain. He joined WGN Morning News to talk about this tentative agreement with Dean Richard on Monday’s show.
