Leslie Moonves: Studios ‘Very Sympathetic’ to Writers in Negotiations

Variety: CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves opened up at the Milken Conference on Wednesday about what it was like for him to deal with the negotiations with the WGA that averted a strike earlier this week.

“I think the companies were all together,” he said of the studios represented by the AMPTP. “We had a united front and guess what–we were very sympathetic to what the writers were asking for. This wasn’t ‘oh my god, they were crazy.’ The span issues of doing eight episodes over 12 months was absolutely valid. Health and pension were valid issues.”
