Finke wrote in her column that WGA negotiators will start contacting individual production studios starting Monday. The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers’ Jesse Hiestand fired back by dismissing the possibility that the union could conquer the studios by dividing them. The producers group “may have different companies with different assets in different businesses, but they are all unified in one common goal – to reach an agreement with writers that positions everyone in our industry for success in a rapidly changing marketplace,” he said in a written statement. Negotiations between the WGA and producers group ground to a halt two weeks ago. The Writers Guild of America plans to begin negotiations with individual production companies starting Monday, in an effort to “divide and conquer” the coalition of Hollywood studios and networks after six weeks of strike. A spokesman for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers shot back that the WGA initiative is “grasping at straws.” The news comes amid reports that David Letterman is seeking a separate contract with his WGA- jurisdiction employees, allowing his CBS late night show to return to the air with its regular staff just after New Year’s Day – regardless of whether there is a nationwide WGA settlement. The New York Times reported that NBC employees Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien may return to the air as early as Jan. 2 without their union writers. Letterman, as owner of his own show, has the advantage of creating his own contract offer to his union shop, whom he has been paying out of pocket for six weeks. last_img read more
