Hollywood studios make new offer to screenwriters


With less than a week to go before a presumed strike deadline, Hollywood studio executives sought to break a deadlock in contract talks with screenwriters by offering a newly condensed package of proposals. 

Initial reaction by the Writers Guild of America was chilly, with the chairman of the union's negotiating committee saying the studios' latest offer amounted to "minor adjustments to major rollbacks."  The move came as the two sides ended their second day of talks since the Writers Guild of America won the overwhelming approval of its members to call a strike if no settlement were reached once their existing contract expires next Wednesday.
