Negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild and the majors have moved into their 12th day with little sign of progress.
Talks resumed Tuesday morning at the headquarters of the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers in Encino with no official word as to specifics.
SAG and the AMPTP are set to negotiate through Friday. SAG’s feature-primetime contract expires June 30 and the lack of resolution has stalled any greenlighting of new feature projects until a deal’s in hand.
The Alliance’s once-delayed primetime talks with the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists will begin next Monday and are widely expected to move quckly to a deal. That prospect may pressure SAG into making a deal over the next few sessions, since AFTRA would have an advantage in signing new shows if it’s the first one with a new deal.
SAG and the majors have spent most of the past three weeks discussing terms in new media. Both sides have continued to avoid any provocative language that would derail negotiatons.
