SAG-AFTRA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have struck a tentative deal for new three-year animation contracts. The pact covers animated programs produced for television, including network, basic cable and streaming platforms.
Their current toon deal originally was set to expire on June 30, but the sides had extended it through July 30. Today’s news comes less than two weeks after SAG-AFTRA’s membership voted overwhelmingly to ratify their new film and TV contract.
“This is a future-focused deal that builds off our successful television and film contract negotiations and even breaks new ground in the application of scale minimums to animated programs made for subscription streaming services, a very important bread-and-butter issue for our members and a strategic breakthrough that is unique to this contract,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris.
