If this is in fact a ploy by AMPTP, it seems to have done the trick from a PR standpoint. Everybody and their grandmother is all but convinced this is over today.
No deal has ever really gone one way completely. I expect it to be like how the last Writers' strike ended but with better residual payments and a little bit more transparency from everyone who's not Netflix and Amazon.
While no deal is at hand at present, the parties have had significant and detailed talks this week, we hear. They are drilling down into the fine print in the hopes of reaching a new three-year contract within hours or days.
However, with the situation fluid and chatter around town of a deal, it is unclear at the moment if the scribes and studios will be meeting again. A new get-together could come tomorrow or on Tuesday, after the Yom Kippur holiday — we will update with more information as we get it. As it stands, a new meeting has not been set as the parties go over details and data coming out of the recent negotiations.
