WGA 08 Strike: Reax to the DGA Deal-a-rama


Nikki Finke is back, and her commenters are happy. She leads off with the provocative headline:

That Shitty DGA Deal is at Least a Start

which will be great to remember if the WGA signs on for that same deal.

United Hollywood strike captains say:

The DGA deal, as we understand it, is neither reason for celebration nor mourning.

John Wells thinks:

I think the DGA deal is good. Very good. For writers, for directors, for the future.

The future at CBS, however, will be short about 20 projects, as the network just cut back.
