Eisner Declares End to Writers Strike

Get ready to crank those TIVOs up again, because it looks like the writers strike has finally ended!

Former Walt Disney chief executive Michael Eisner told CNBC yesterday during an interview on "Fast Company" that the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers had come to an agreement and ended the strike. Both sides have been at odds for over 13 weeks, shutting down production on most scripted network television shows and several motion pictures.

"A deal has been made and they'll be back to work very soon. I know it's over," Eisner said during the interview. Both sides had already announced plans to resume talks this Saturday, but now it appears the meeting will be used to finalize whatever agreements have been made.

Eisner also told CNBC that while the writers would be returning to work, many of them would see a drastic reduction in their former salaries. He gave no word, though, on what stipulations had been made by either side to help resolve the strike. --Chris Sardelli
