12 Days into the strike and we get our first big surprise. That surprise was first delivered by Nikki Finke over at Deadline Hollywood Daily, then subsequently confirmed by Variety. The confirmed surprise was that the talks between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers will resume on November 26, the Monday after Thanksgiving. This is very good news for anyone who is interested in seeing the strike end quickly (fans of The Daily Show please stand up). Very few people were expecting any more strike talks until after Christmas, but that was until the WGA released the following statement:
It truly is amazing that they can say so little and thus say so much. But then again, they are the Writers Guild of America. We’ll keep you posted.
