The Writers Guild of America has announced that, as of 12:01 a.m. PT on Wednesday, September 27, the historic Hollywood strike that lasted for 146 days is over. Writers will be allowed to work and take meetings with studios. While the deal with the AMPTP is still tentative, the guild has voted to end the strike while its members are prepping to vote to ratify the contract next week from October 2-9. The guild states that the writer’s ability to work should not be able to affect their decision in voting on whether or not to ratify the contract. Full details of the tentative deal are available on the WGA site and include important strike issues like artificial intelligence and pay raises for writers of all levels. Now, writers can transition from walking on the picket lines to walking into meetings to sell their scripts.
