Hollywood strike: writers relieved after agreement announced

Hollywood (United States) (AFP) – Striking writers whose industrial action has paralyzed the American film industry for almost five months have reached a deal with studios that could see them go back to work. They were demanding better pay, greater rewards for creating hit shows and protection from artificial intelligence. This breakthrough raises hopes that actors, who also joined strikes in July, can also reach terms with studios to end a months-long impasse. This industrial action has seen film and TV production largely halted, costing the California economy billions of dollars.
