(Updated with WGA statement) The writers and the studios are set to get back around the negotiating table. The AMPTP revealed Thursday that the two parties are “working to schedule a meeting next week.”“On Wednesday, September 13, the WGA reached out to the AMPTP and asked for a meeting to move negotiations forward. We have agreed and are working to schedule a meeting next week. On August 11, there was an initial counter offer from the AMPTP and the WGA offered counterproposals on August 15. On August 22, after a suddenly called tense meeting by CEOs with WGA brass, the AMPTP released details of that offer in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to go around guild leadership to members.
