But when will our favorites be back on? That is one question that still remains to be answered even as it appears that television and movie writers will be headed back to work. According to the Associated Press, producers say they expect writers to return to work as early as tomorrow now that the Writers Guild of America has moved to end its three-month-old strike. On Sunday, guild leaders recommended a tentative three-year contract to members and asked them to vote separately on a quick end to the walkout. The tentative contract secures writers a share of the burgeoning digital-media market, including compensation for Internet-delivered TV shows and movies. So despite the weakening employment market, there will be a few more folks back in the workforce soon.
