Negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), representing Hollywood actors, and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), acting on behalf of entertainment companies, resumed on Monday at SAG-AFTRA's Los Angeles base. The talks had been on hold for over two months, but are set to continue on Wednesday.

The main points of contention in these discussions involve the actors' demands for a 2% cut of streaming revenue and wage increases, both of which are being contested by the studios. These negotiations are critical for restarting the American film and television industry, which has been paused due to strikes since May.

A tentative agreement has already been reached between studios and the Writers Guild of America, indicating progress in resolving industry-wide disputes. California's Governor Gavin Newsom has underscored the significant economic impact these negotiations, and their outcome, could have.

Prominent executives such as Ted Sarandos from Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX ), David Zaslav from Warner Bros. Discovery (NASDAQ: WBD ), Donna Langley from NBCUniversal Studio Group, and Robert A. Iger from Disney were present during the discussions. Their participation highlights the high stakes involved in these talks and their potential ramifications for the entertainment industry at large.
