An End in Sight to the Writers Strike?

Could the Guild and the studios be ready to come to an agreement to end the movie and TV writers strike? Deadline Hollywood’s Nikki Finke — who just today was profiled by The New York Times, after turning her blog into the go-to site for strike news — writes: "a very reliable source tells me that there appears to be a deal seemingly in place between both sides."

She goes on:

"It’s already done, basically," the insider describes. That’s because of the weeks worth of groundwork by the Hollywood agents working the writers guild leadership on one side, and the studio and network moguls on the other. I was told not to expect an agreement this week. But my source thought it was possible that the strike could be settled before Christmas.

Take it for what it’s worth. An End in Sight to the Writers Strike?
