The 100-day Hollywood writers’ strike is over. Members of the Writers Guild of America voted overwhelmingly to end their work stoppage and go back to work. “Our membership has voted, and writers can go back to work,” WGA West president Patric Verrone said at a news conference last night. “This was not a strike we wanted but one we had to conduct in order to win jurisdiction and establish appropriate residuals for writing in new media and on the Internet. Those advances now give us a foothold in the digital age. Rather than being shut out of the future of content creation and delivery, writers will lead the way as TV migrates to the Internet and platforms for new media are developed.”

“Everybody is excited about getting back to work,” said CBS CEO Les Moonves. “We’re going to get as many shows back into production as quickly as possible.”

There was a worry before I started this that I was going to burn every bridge I had. But I realize now that there are some bridges that are worth burning.
