AMPTP asserts that the offer includes significant bottom line gains, a minimum 10-week hiring commitment for most TV series writers and writers-producers and an increase in residual foreign payments formula to streaming platforms.

“We hope the WGA will work towards the same decision,” said Carole Lombardini, AMPTP Chair.
