The WGA and David Letterman’s Worldwide Pants have reached an agreement that will allow “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” to return to the air next week with their writers.
The Letterman-owned CBS latenighters will return Wednesday, people familiar with the situation said. A rep for Worldwide Pants declined comment.
Talks between Worldwide Pants and the WGA weren’t looking fruitful. But that changed within the last 48 hours, sources said.
Interim agreement is the first deal struck by the WGA with a studio since the strike began last month.
