The strike of Hollywood writers could end as soon as Monday if the guild finds a proposed contract favorable. The guild is meeting this weekend to consider the proposal, and writers expressed a mix of optimism and skepticism.
While Hilary Winston, a 'My Name Is Earl' writer, said her feelings are "relief and optimism and excitement," Erik Oleson said he wouldn't "drink the Kool-Aid and accept a bad deal. I'd rather continue the strike ... what matters is the fine print."
If the guild shows support for the proposal by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, dozens of shows could return to production, putting thousands of entertainment employees back on the job.
