The Latest WGA-ATA Weekly Report

by Larry Brody

It was been pretty damn quiet on both the Western and Eastern Fronts last week.

No new lawsuits. No authorized spokesmen spouting their side’s line.

But that doesn’t mean the Writers Guild and the Association of Talent Agents and their members, both individual and corporate, have made up. No, no, no, no.

No real movement there at all.

Here’s the most interesting news during that pretty much no-news week. At least to me.

Verve Seeking Package Fees For Unscripted Projects

Writers John August & Craig Mazin Debate WGA’s Rejection Of Agencies’ Offer To Share Revenue

William Schmidt Leads “Loyal Opposition” In Bid For WGA West Presidency; Two Guild Leaders Call For Him To Be Investigated For Not Firing His Agent

More to come, of course. Seeya next week.

In Solidarity,
