The strike has been suspended, according to Information Week. The basic terms of the deal are “when they get paid, we get paid,” meaning when the producers get paid from internet advertising accompanying content, the writers will get paid as well. They’ll get 2% of the gross revenue.
While this isn’t final, union leaders believe the WGA members will approve the deal. In fact, the article states that the writers could get back to work as early as Wednesday, February 13th. Hopefully that means new episodes of “Heroes” and other TV shows will be coming soon, and the movie business will be able to get back to work.
