files/pictures/picture-35.jpgAn end to the three-month long writers strike seems to be on the horizon. The trades are reporting that the WGA ruling boards unanimously approved the tentative deal with the studios. The move will send showrunners back to work on Monday. Members will vote to end the strike on Tuesday evening, which could send scribes back to work as soon as Wednesday.
WGA West president Patric Verrone said that the deal is the best in 30 years. He also thanked News Corp. president Peter Chernin, Disney CEO Robert Iger and CBS head Leslie Moonves for their efforts in working out the deal, which gives new media gains to writers.
