WGA, AMPTP reach tentative deal

The Writers Guild of America has reached a tentative deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

WGA West president Patric Verrone and WGA East president Michael Winship sent out an email to members at 3 a.m. Saturday alerting writers that a deal has been made that "protects a future in which the Internet becomes the primary means of both content creation and delivery."

    Patrick Verrone is a sellout pussy. The writer’s deal is vague and ambiguous. Grow some balls…The Directors deal is a sellout and we should have boycotted the Academy Awards but the ego maniacal writers thought it more important to hob nob on the red carpet then to get a fair deal with DVDS, broad band and Narrow band. The Directors screwed the writers and the writers are screwing the actors…mean while Arnold is silent. Petroleum jelly should be on every writers desk who votes yes!

    If the strike is finally settled, I’m wondering what I’ll do without the Variety WGA Strike Blog as one of my first reads. You’ve done a great job with this blog.
