Strike Update: Producers Present a New Proposal

There's a recess in writers' strike talks today, as the writers' side considers a new proposal presented yesterday by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

The producers say the proposal, dubbed the New Economic Partnership, would offer writers more than $130 million beyond what they already receive for broadcasts of their work over the Internet and other "new media" methods. The Writers Guild of America, on the other hand, said the proposal is actually a massive rollback that would hurt writers in the long run. Full details of the proposal have not been made public.

It's hard to say what it all means, at this point, other than that negotiations are on hold till Tuesday while the writers study the proposal. The memo from the WGA makes it sound like this isn't a deal the writers are ready to accept — but maybe it's a step toward new proposals and ultimately a good deal? Let's hope.

Oh I hope it's a better contract than they say - I feel bad for those writers and most of the SoCal ecomomy. Plus, I'm really going to miss my shows, CSI is already in reruns :( and that's my favorite show. There's only so much reality tv a girl can take.
