Well, it’s all been kicking off hasn’t it...?
Recently the Writers Guild Of America have stepped up and finally decided something needs to be done about the way US talent agents ‘package’ deals. It’s a ludicrously complicated subject... and i’ll put my hands up right now and tell you I’ve never been a fan of packaging fees (I’d suggest a Google for more details on what they and packaging in general are). But the other day I read a very angry and passionate piece by writer David Simon (The Wire, The Deuce, Treme) about just this subject. It might help you understand what us writers who work in America and the WGA are fighting against. Link HERE.
