Writers Guild of America & MRC ink deal

MUMBAI: The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and MRC, the independent film, television and digital studio, have reached a comprehensive interim agreement that forges a new alliance between writers, producers, and financiers in the production of films, TV shows, and digital programs.

“This is an exciting agreement that will open up opportunities for writers, especially in New Media,” said Writers Guild of America, West president Patric M. Verrone and Writers Guild of America, East president Michael Winship. “We know that Guild members will be eager to be a part of the MRC creative team.”
“MRC operates from two basic concepts and this agreement is a natural extension of that ethos: we treat talent as our partners and we maximize distribution across all digital, film and television platforms,” said MRC co-CEO’s Asif Satchu and Modi Wiczyk. 

“As with all of our partnerships, we could not have accomplished this agreement without creative talent. In this case, we especially want to thank our colleague Seth MacFarlane for helping pave the way with the WGA and also to the leaders of the Guild who worked with the utmost professionalism.”
