TV Junkie: Thursday
The Screen Actors Guild contract runs out on Monday, yup, the day is fast upon us, and it looks like, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the SAG will attempt to extend their contract instead of vote for a strike. This will keep the studios' projects moving forward while the SAG and AFTRA get in lockstep (or not) and the SAG decides what its deal-breaking points are (or not). The SAG is becoming very aware of how shaky its membership is feeling, economically speaking, after the WGA strike last year. As LAist reported earlier this month, the economic impact of the WGA strike was significant, can the region handle another similar event?
