SAG, producers in voiceover pact

Artistic director to join Puccini's 'La Fanciulla del West'

The Screen Actors Guild and approximately 60 animation producers have reached a tentative agreement covering voiceover performers working in TV animation.

Producers include majors such as Warner Bros., Disney, DreamWorks, MGM and Paramount, as well as dozens of smaller companies.

Leonard Chassman, the guild’s Hollywood executive director, negotiated for SAG, while Carol Lombardini, vice president of the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers, acted on behalf of management.

If approved, the three-year deal will replace a contract that expired on June 30. Theatrical animation is not part of the deal, since it was covered in the basic agreement negotiated in April.

SAG’s negotiating committee approved the terms of the deal late Wednesday, Chassman said. The terms will not be released publicly until guild members have a chance to hear them at a special meeting to be held Aug. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Universal Hotel.
