DGA takes on Big 3 networks

Pact covers associate directors, stage managers

The DGA is launching negotiations today in New York with the three major networks for staff and freelance directors — a contract that’s separate from its basic film-TV contract.

The pact also covers associate directors and stage managers employed in news, sports and operations at the companies’ network affils and at a number of their locally owned-and-operated TV stations.

The DGA talks are headed by William M. Brady, chair of its network negotiations committee, along with vice chair Scott Berger and Russell Hollander, the DGA’s eastern exec director. The contract expires June 30.

The DGA said it’s agreed with the networks that neither side will comment further until negotiations have concluded.
