Writers and studios schedule talks

Posted on

If you were already having fits over a potential longterm Michael Scott sabbatical, it’s okay, breathe. Dry your eyes. Because there’s a chance — albeit a slight one — that he and The Office will be back sooner than you think. Last night, the Writer’s Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers announced in identical statements that they would resume negotiations on Nov. 26.  No futher details were released and both sides agreed to a media blackout. Picketing is planned to go as scheduled next Monday and Tuesday, breaking the rest of the week for Thanksgiving.
