The Screen Actors Guild and kiddie TV producer Saban Entertainment have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract.
Pact, hammered out Wednesday, was expected to cover all areas of Saban programming.
SAG’s national board could consider the agreement as early as Nov. 19, when the Hollywood/general membership board is set to meet and newly elected officers and board members will be installed. SAG’s entire national board is skedded to meet Dec. 6 to work out the specifics of its decision to cut the size of the board from 107 to 71 members.
SAG and Saban reached their first contract agreement in early 1998, when the producer agreed to put all its productions under guild contracts. That deal was reached a week after SAG ordered members not to work for Saban because of its “failure to meet industry standards” for working actors.
