Actor's Strike: 'Interim Agreements'

Ever since a strike was launched July 14, 2023 by actors guild SAG-AFTRA against the 'Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers', 300 film productions in the US, Canada and international locations, have since signed an 'interim agreement', allowing productions with no direct ties to members of the 'AMPTP' to continue filming and that actors will be able to “ on and promote certain productions without being in violation of the strike order".

Notable productions signing the agreement include "Interview With The Vampire"...


"The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon"




According to SAG-AFTRA:

"...the 'Interim Agreement' gives many of our journeyman performers and crews the opportunity to pay their rent and feed their families. This approach maintains our strength, solidarity and upper hand with the AMPTP until they yield to the deal we deserve.

"Some have suggested that the Interim Agreement might prolong the strike, but we disagree. We believe the leverage created by increasing competitive pressure on the AMPTP and denying them what they want most will force them back to the table and help bring this strike to an end."
