WGA Strike update

The Directors Guild of America’s National Board of Directors approved that
guild's new contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television
Producers this weekend -- paving the way to ratification of the deal by its
general membership.
Now it's a prominent DGA member's role in the upcoming
Academy Awards that might be driving a recent surge toward settlement in the
writers strike.
That member, Gil Cates, is the producer for this year's Oscar broadcast. Let's hope the two sides can make a deal by then. Not because I care about the Oscars...I just want my SNL back.
