An end to the long-running Hollywood writers’ strike may be in sight, with the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers – which represents the streamers and the studios – reportedly having reached a tentative agreement over a new deal.

No details of what the deal contains have yet been released, but if the WGA’s 11,500 members ratify it, the 146-day strike could soon be over.

The Writers Guild has been on strike since May 2 when its agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers expired.

More to come.
