Hollywood studios and the Writers Guild of America (WGA) have reached a preliminary three-year deal. Under the agreement, writers will receive credit and compensation for their work on scripts, even if studios use AI tools. Additionally, studios will retain the right to train AI models based on writers’ work. This deal is expected to end one of two ongoing strikes in the industry, which have halted film and television production and had significant economic impacts in California. However, the actors and performers’ union is still on strike, with similar demands for higher wages and protection against AI use. There is also a potential for a strike among video game voice actors and motion capture performers if negotiations on a new labor contract do not succeed.
