A week after locking up the Writers Guild to a new three year deal, studio executives are back at the bargaining table today for their first talks with SAG-AFTRA since actors walked out on strike back in mid-July.
Since this is the first real negotiations the two sides have had since the strike was called, there is a lot of work to be done to get actors back to work.
They do have the WGA contract to use as a guideline but working out a deal with the much bigger SAG-AFTRA union could be a trickier task.
