Breakthrough Means Writers' Strike Could End This Week

Cross Your Fingers: Writers' Strike Could End This Week


Our long Winter of repeats, reality shows, and terrible awards show press conferences may be coming to an end —and sooner rather than later. The entertainment world is buzzing with the news that "major roadblocks" to a new contract between writers and producers have been eliminated, meaning the writers' strike could be over as early as this week.

There's no official contract as of now, and the Writers Guild of America would still have to vote on whatever deal is reached. But several reports said the major sticking points were nearly resolved — including the thorny issue of how (and how much) to pay writers for programs broadcast online.

What would a deal mean for the TV season? It depends on the show. But some shows, including Grey's Anatomy, are preparing to go back into production within a month or so, while others such as Pushing Daisies are more likely to be off the air until Fall. But hey, at least we're talking about this Fall, not Fall of 2010, right? Let's keep those fingers crossed until a deal is official.
