Many of you have been calling, emailing and stopping me on the street asking about the results of today’s proceedings. Our official statement is below. Unfortunately, I can’t comment any further at this time . . . although I’d sure like to. 🙂
A grievance hearing was held today in accordance with the Equity-League Production Contract regarding the matter of Jeremy Piven and Speed-the-Plow. Following the terms of the collective-bargaining agreement, a panel of five League representatives and five Equity representatives met and heard the positions of the parties. The League and Equity representatives were unable to reach a unanimous decision. The Producers have the rights, as a next step, to proceed to arbitration.
