Writers Guild of America contract talks stall, move Hollywood closer to a possible strike – Los Angeles Times

Members of the Writers Guild of America scripted themselves a classic Hollywood nail-biter in their contract negotiations with the major studios.

Talks between the two sides stalled late Monday as the countdown clock approached the midnight deadline without any announcement about a deal.

It appeared likely that the guild would move to extend the deadline by 24 hours so that discussions with the studios could continue.

While the writers and the studios seemed to have made some progress over the weekend on several issues, including the guild’s healthcare plan, writers had not responded to the studio’s latest offer by well past noon Monday, according to sources familiar with the discussions who weren’t authorized to talk to the media.
