Actors strike over as SAG-AFTRA reaches a tentative deal with the Hollywood studios

I decided to blog again today about the end of the actors strike. Watch PBS NewsHour report on this and interview Fran Drescher, president of SAG-AFTRA, in Why the Screen Actors Guild agreed to end a strike that crippled Hollywood.

The actors' union SAG-AFTRA has reached a tentative deal with the Hollywood studios, ending the longest strike for TV and film actors in history. The deal worth more than $1 billion includes new levels of minimum compensation, bonuses tied to streaming and the first protections against artificial intelligence. Fran Drescher, president of SAG-AFTRA, joins Geoff Bennett to discuss.
It sounds like the union got the deal its members needed. Good. I was rooting for them.

Seth Meyers expressed his relief in Seth Addresses the SAG Strike Ending.

Seth remarks on SAG-AFTRA and Hollywood studios coming to an agreement to end the historic strike.
Guests being able to promote their upcoming movies and TV shows is making it easier and more fun for everyone on variety shows. That's true for Saturday Night Live, too. Watch Timothée Chalamet and boygenius are Living, Laughing and Loving - SNL.

Timothée Chalamet hosts Saturday Night Live on November 11, 2023, with musical guest boygenius.
LOL, looking forward to the show already.

In the meantime, stay tuned for Veterans Day.
