Thesp talks likely to speed up

Session is just fifth since talks began May 15

Film-TV contract negotiations between actors and studios resumed Tuesday with the thus-far sluggish pace of talks expected to accelerate this week.

The afternoon session at the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Produces in Encino was only the fifth since talks launched May 15 and the first since May 24. Both sides spent last week holding caucus meetings to formulate counterproposals to the initial offers.

With only 24 days left until the current film-TV contract expires, observers believe negotiators will begin meeting on most weekdays to hammer out a deal. Most trackers expect the actors’ reps will reach a deal that includes some elements of last month’s Writers Guild settlement.

Both sides continued to observe a news blackout that was imposed when negotiations launched.
