A light at the end of the tunnel?

In a joint statement, the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said both sides had agreed to return to formal negotiations. The statement said no other details would be released.

    Say no to television (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    This is really too bad, because it would be better for people if they had no TV to watch, making them slothful, bored, relatively depressed, etc. Then they would have to pick up hobbies and stuff, and only then realize how bored they had been.

    Said they would return to work if the Studios went back to the negotiating table.  I'm hoping his is real and not just a way to get shows rolling again.

    For as much as they bluster that they are not being hurt by the strike, it is pretty obvious that they are.  Heard from a studio lawyer (you guys!) that the legal teams are scrambling to put together proposals for the studio heads.  I can only assume that is happening because they really want to end this.

    The studios are getting clobbered by this crazy thing called the interweb.  They are finding out for the first time that they don't control information and it seems to have them rattled a bit.
