AP: “Other issues abruptly emerge as potential stumbling blocks”


A snippet from an AP story going over the “wires” this evening. This is giving signs of also becoming a turf war with none other than Mr. Thomas Short, and we’ll have a fuller analysis on another post:

As wrangling over a new contract for striking Hollywood writers focused on digital media, other issues abruptly emerged as potential stumbling blocks.

Studio negotiators were surprised during talks Wednesday when the Writers Guild of America discussed unionizing reality shows and animation, a person familiar with the negotiations said Thursday.

The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers had thought those topics were off the table, according to the person, who requested anonymity because public comment was supposed to be limited to official statements.

The guild said Thursday that reality TV, for one, was never exempted from the discussions. It declined to comment further as the latest round of talks continued for a third consecutive day.

The alliance did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
