Filmmaking in Hollywood has been disrupted for a couple of months now as the WGA (Writers Guild of America) and SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild—American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) were striking against the AMPTP (Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers). Patrick Schwarzenegger, the eldest son of Arnold Schwarzenegger, was actively involved in the strike and often shared the progress on his social media.

The 11,500-member guild has now reached a tentative deal with studio giants like Netflix Inc., Walt Disney Co., NBCUniversal, and Warner Bros. Discovery Inc. Arnie’s son is excited about this new development.

Hollywood came to a standstill as production houses were closed, and actors and writers took to the roads to protest against the prevailing work conditions. Despite economic losses, the screenwriters adhered to their ground, and their efforts have fetched them a tentative deal with AMPTP with better terms and conditions.

We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional – with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership,” the guild declared in an official statement. While the SAG-AFTRA is yet to reach an agreement, Patrick Schwarzenegger celebrated WGA’s victory.
