News Corp. President and COO Peter Chernin says that he and other top media executives "worked hard to find a middle ground" in their negotiations with the Writers Guild of America (WGA), the Directors Guild of America (DGA), the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employes (sic) (IATSE) "and we are not going to throw that out to do a deal with" the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). In an interview with TV Week Chernin said things are going "horribly" between SAG and the producers. Referring to a possible strike authorization vote that the union says it intends to put before its members, Chernin said, "This is a bad time to go out on strike. Obviously, I have a bias here, but a strike would be devastating to the creative community." SAG leaders have not responded to his comments. Meanwhile, LA. Weekly columnist Nikki Finke reported on her blog Thursday that the WGA has reached an agreement with Tyler Perry Studios under which his House of Payne and The Browns series will be covered under a WGA contract and four writers who were fired from the productions will be rehired.
