Strike ends - More strikes on the way!

A victory for the organized of the world! Overwhelming writers approval. The best quote?

Michael R. Perry, a writer for “Persons Unknown” and other TV dramas, said the deal made him hopeful the guild and studios could be “partners in a growing pie” of Internet revenue.

I want them to be fabulously, filthy rich. I just want my piece,” Perry said.

Hope springs eternal (thanks to Ryan @ the News Tribune) - even while Congress listens to more half truths - now with live blogging.

Bob, I don't blame the writers for wanting a piece of the pie. It is in part their writing creativity that takes many shows to the top. Do you sense they got a fair settlement?

Robyn - My sense is they got a fair shake - though its tough to say at this point. Who knows the potential of a market (online) that continues expanding? I understand that to be the writers main concern - and a valid one from my perspective. We are just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Its funny - I don't spend a lot of time with TV but it makes a huge difference when the scripts are professionally done.
