    Re: UTA reaches agreement with WGA

    I guess I'm late on the game on most of this

    are the big pros and cons[?]:

    Pro: big agencies can get you more money because the over-all budget is larger, but the content needs a large commercial appeal

    Con: Writers are employed as write-4-hire and don't have a stake in the development or creation, so they don't own the material they write. This also keeps spec writers from getting sales, because a ProCo would rather not have to share profits with screenwriters... and especially with New Media, there's less money to go around?

    I assume WGA comes in because writers are making less money and WGA is becoming much less relevant in the process?

      CAA bloodbath today for employees. I think we down to about 1000 people who make any money in Hollywood. We should all be plumbers.

        Hmm. The beginning of your post references a bloodbath, and the last part of your post references plumbers. Verry interestingk.

        Becoming a plumber wouldn’t put a drain on my creative writing energies.
