{In A Lather Editor's Note:}

FX' original airing of Nip/Tuck episode 5.14 Candy Richards, placed the Hearts & Scalpels segment differently than we have opted to here. It is not our intent to change the original content of the piece, however for In A Lather's editing purposes we have separated that arc. And now, to continue {in it's entirety} with Nip/Tuck Season 5 Finale Candy Richards 5.14...

Frank Costanza [Jerry Stiller] to son George Costanza [Jason Alexander] "Without the writing they have nothing. You're the ones that make them look good." ~ Seinfeld Season 9 Finale Part 1, written by Larry David.

92.5% of WGA members vote yes to end the 100 day strike.

"The strike is over. Our membership has voted. Writers can go back to work." ~ WGA West Coast President Patric Verrone

"We're receiving a percentage of the distributor's gross, which is very real money, as opposed to what people refer to as creative or Hollywood accounting." ~ WGA East Coast President Michael Winship

"The rules of our business are changing so rapidly, the ways people are using media and content are changing so rapidly. For our creative partners, relationships and communication are really important. The (WGA) realizes it, and we realize it. Let's not look backward; let's look forward." ~ Les Moonves, CBS President and CEO.

WGA: According to Eisner A Handshake Deal To Deal Has Been Made

Michael Eisner CNBC Fast Money
CNBC EXCLUSIVE: Hollywood heavyweight, Michael Eisner appearing on CNBC's Fast Money says "WGA strike over". Mr. Eisner tempered his good news with a caveat that it is possible, but not likely that the members could turn the deal down, but that he does not expect that to occur as it would be in the best interest of all parties to agree on paper with the terms of the "handshake" deal. This means that as soon as Monday February 11, 2008, writers would return to banging out scripts. Fingers crossed that the deal does indeed go through.

Thank you to nip/tuckforum moderator Sunny for the heads-up on Mr.Eisner's announcement.

WGA: End Of The Strike?...Well, Not Quite

AP photo WGA strike Burbank CA 1_2_08
The weekend of February 2-3,'08, rumors were burning up the news wires that the [thus far] 12week [begun November 5, 2007] WGA strike was coming to an end. Tru'dat? Well, yes and no. An agreement with 4 independent NYC WGA members: Greene Street Films, Killer Films, Open City Films, and This is that nee Good Machine [Hollywood.com's Good Machine Movie Listings] has been reached. Jason Kliot and Joana Vicente, speaking for GreeneStreet, Open City and Killer films, credited the union with "thoughtfulness during the discussions." Co-founders Ted Hope and Anne Carey said the united action by the companies to settle "clarifies our support for and solidarity with the WGA's position." WGA East president Michael Winship called the pacts "a reaffirmation of their dedication to great writing, bold innovation and good old-fashioned, New York City street smarts" by companies that he said had helped to revitalize the motion picture industry. The latest agreements with the Writers Guild's east and west units enables the four indie producers to "resume business immediately." public domain sookietex photo clapboard2 The announcement did not offer details of the agreements but said they were "similar" to agreements reached earlier between the WGA and 13 other film and TV production companies.

However, the strike overall has not come to an end. One of the key sticking points in the strike talks, are residuals for content used on new-media platforms. "While fully mindful of the continuing media blackout, we write you to address the rumors and reports that undoubtedly you have been hearing," WGA East president Michael Winship and WGA West president Patric Verrone said in their e-mail. "The facts: we are still in talks and do not yet have a contract," they told members.

"When and if a tentative agreement is reached, the first thing we will do is alert our membership with an e-mail message. Until then, please disregard rumors about either the existence of an agreement or its terms. Until we have reached an agreement with the AMPTP, it is essential that we continue to show our resolve, solidarity, and strength."
