David Letterman’s statement on WGA pact

Here’s what David Letterman has to say about Worldwide Pants’ pact with the WGA, which will allow him and Craig Ferguson to resume their CBS latenighters on Wednesday, with scribes.

“I am grateful to the WGA for granting us this agreement. We’re happy to be going back to work, and particularly pleased to be doing it with our writers,” Letterman said. “This is not a solution to the strike, which unfortunately continues to disrupt the lives of thousands. But I hope it will be seen as a step in the right direction.”

This is a positive result, both for the WGA and for our shows, and we are appreciative that the leaders of the Guild dealt with us reasonably and in good faith,” said Rob Burnett, President and CEO of Worldwide Pants and Executive Producer of “The Late Show.”
