CAA and Writers Guild Sign Deal to End Standoff Over Packaging, Agency Says

New franchise agreement would let CAA resume representing writers


Creative Artists Agency announced on Wednesday that it has reached a deal with the Writers Guild of America on a new franchise agreement that will allow writers to be represented by the agency after a nearly two-year standoff.

“CAA and the WGA have concluded and signed a franchise agreement confirming CAA can resume representing writers and continue the important work of helping them realize their ambitions.  We end this year of unprecedented global challenges with the optimism and energy that today’s news brings, starting now, and for the years ahead,” a CAA spokesperson said Wednesday.

The WGA has yet to release its own statement confirming the deal. CAA had previously announced a deal earlier this fall only for the Writers Guild to walk it back, saying there were still issues concerning the agency’s stake in affiliate production studio Wiip that still needed to be resolved.
