Writers Guild rejects studio offer

Producers say the new package, dubbed the "New Economic Partnership," would add $130 million to $1.3 billion already paid annually to writers, according to the New York Times. Reports The Times: "In a letter to members, however, the two guilds blasted the proposal as inadequate. They said, for instance, that it would pay only $250 for a year’s re-use of an hour-long program streamed on the Web, in contrast to the $20,000 currently paid for a network re-run." Meanwhile, negotiations will resume Tuesday after a four-day break.
