Moguls: We’re ready to make nice

As writers rally on Hollywood Blvd., members of the AMPTP are trying to strike a conciliatory tone.

CBS supremo Leslie Moonves sent an e-mail to staffers this morning saying that while the two sides still have substantial differences, "We continue to believe that with hard work, patience and understanding from both sides, they can be overcome."

The Moonves mail is almost identical to a letter Warner Bros. distributed to staffers today. Apparently, members of the AMPTP agreed on the basic structure of the letter. Each conglom then customized the ending.

The full text of Moonves' letter is after the jump.
