Nikki Finke of the always reliable Deadline Hollywood Daily and the L.A. Weekly reports that the basic framework of an agreement between the WGA and AMPTP has been achieved, and that both sides are working through it:
"It's already done, basically," the insider describes. That's because of the weeks worth of groundwork by the Hollywood agents working the writers guild leadership on one side, and the studio and network moguls on the other. I was told not to expect an agreement this week. But my source thought it was possible that the strike could be settled before Christmas.
Remember that many TV shows take a Christmas break anyway, so it shouldn't be too difficult for Battlestar Galactica production to get back up and running not long after the new year once scripts start being written again.
