WGA-AMPTP Negotiations Still Going Amid Signs of Momentum

Negotiations between the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Hollywood studios continued into Friday night as questions swirled around town regarding whether a deal had been reached or if talks had once again broken down.

There is no word yet on a deal, but insiders with knowledge of ongoings in the room say there is momentum on both sides.

Multiple sources confirmed to Variety that, as of publication time, the WGA’s and Alliance of MOtion Picture and Television Producers’s (AMPTP) negotiation committee members were still in talks at the table in Sherman Oaks, alongside four top entertainment CEOs who have spent three days in the room now: Disney’s Bob Iger, Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav, NBCUniversal’s Donna Langley and Netflix’s Ted Sarandos.

It is understood the four CEOs in the room held a call with some of their counterparts at other companies at some point Friday.
