Writers, Studios Make Little Headway, Says Report

Negotiators for the Writers Guild of America and the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers were due to return to the bargaining table again today after two day of talks that reportedly showed little forward motion. L.A. Weekly columnist Nikki Finke reported on her Deadline Hollywood Daily Internet site today (Wednesday) that the studio representatives have spent the last two days rehashing the proposals that they had on the table when the writers walked out, adding only two relatively insignificant new items for the WGA to consider. She quoted one source as saying, "You can look at this as some really sophisticated and interesting negotiating tactic, or as stonewalling. But it's also paralysis. It's one thing to go back but another to not move at all." Meanwhile, today's Los Angeles Times observed that even if the strike were settled before Christmas, normal operations could not be resumed for three to five weeks. "Resuming production isn't something that can happen overnight," Pam Veasey, an executive producer of CSI: New York, told the Times. "You have to write scripts, you have to find locations, you have to do casting. It doesn't just take one week to prepare 200 crew members to film a single episode of a drama."
