ACTORS' STRIKE IS A WRAP

Ring the bells, my little couch potatoes—the last obstruction in your entertainment pipeline is being dislodged.

SAG-AFTRA, which reps tens of thousands of thespians, has reached an agreement with the production overlords on a deal that will result in your being able to watch your stories on the Hulu box and whatnot once again.

With the negotiating committee having declared the strike officially over today (11/9), the next step is for the SAG-AFTRA national board to approve it on Friday.

The actors were striking over the remuneration they receive from streaming services as well as fears that studios would use AI to make robot actors that could be paid in WD-40, or something. We don't really get the technology part, but they were definitely worried about it.

As you know, on 9/24 the Writers Guild of America reached its own accord with studios to end its monthslong strike. WGA reps called the terms of that agreement a huge victory. Will actors be as jubilant with what their union has achieved? As they say in the TV biz, stay tuned.
