Both sides adhere to news blackout

Hollywood writers’ film-TV contract negotiations received a boost Tuesday as the scribes’ leaders decided to press on with talks rather than end this round of negotiations.

Fears had emerged that negotiations, now in their sixth week, had hit a wall over foreign residuals, and would lead to the Writers Guild of America pulling the plug on talks following a WGA West board meeting Monday night.

But negotiations continued Tuesday at WGA West headquarters and were extended to today, with both sides adhering to the ongoing news blackout. The WGA’s current contract expires May 2.
