A long-simmering dispute between the Writers Guild of America East and West Coast branches (the Guilds) and the talent agencies that represent writers (among other talent) in the television and motion picture industries became much more public in recent months and boiled over with the filing of a lawsuit by the Guilds and several individual writers against the four largest talent agencies (the Agencies). Writers Guild of America West v. WME Entertainment, No. 19SMCV00725, Superior Court, Los Angeles County. At issue are the packaging fees charged by the Agencies in connection with almost 90% of television series as well as some independent feature films not financed or produced by a major studio.
