Oh, that it would be so. With the WGA bargaining committee reaching a tentative agreement with the AMPTP, we might be seeing the beginning of the end of the writers’ strike that has brought Hollywood to its knees. There’s still quite a bit of discussion about the terms of the deal, whether they’ll be acceptable the the WGA membership as a whole, and whether a formal vote needs to be held before writers return to work (a discussion that is both interesting and civil, so check it out). While we admit to being dismayed when we check our TiVos and see nothing but Countdown with Keith Olbermann and reruns of Ninja Warrior (woman cannot live on Keith and Shingo alone), our most fervent hopes are that this agreement is a fair one for the writers and that the details of resolution are fairly and appropriately handled so that everyone involved, including below-the-line crew and support staff, can get back to work.
Fingers crossed, everybody.
