WGA D-Day Monday? Mayor of LA offers to mediate WGA strike.

According to Carl DiOrio’s report in The Hollywood Reporter, and Dave McNary’s report in Variety, WGA has called for a strike. The walkout may start as early as Monday. The Mayor of Los Angeles has stepped in to try to help:

“In a surprise development, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has offered his services to help bring about an agreement between the writers and logo_hollywoodreporter.jpgthe Hollywood TV and film studios. Representatives of the guild and the Hollywood studios held an initial gettogether in the mayor’s office Thursday.”

Anything could happen, but as of now, the immediate future doesn’t look very bright. Stay tuned.
