DGA Deal Reached?!

According to Variety, the DGA has reached a tentative deal with the AMPTP. Not really sure what this means to the WGA, if anything? Still, for a deal to be reached by one of the guilds is a good sign that maybe the struggle between the writers and studios can be resolved.

Here is the news from Variety:
The DGA deal amps up the pressure from all sides on the leadership of the Writers Guild of America, which has been out on strike since Nov. 5. Its last negotiations with the AMPTP collapsed on Dec. 7 with the congloms demanding that the guild drop six of its proposals.

The town’s focus will immediately shift to whether the terms of the DGA deal will be acceptable to the WGA. A group of moderate writers have been pushing in recent days for the leaders not to reject the DGA deal out of hand.

Optimists believe that the DGA deal will be enough of a breakthrough on new-media questions to pave the way for a WGA pact.
