Writers Negotiate With Hollywood

NPR's Andy Bowers reports on the potential writers strike in Hollywood. As the success of cable and broadcast networks increased over the past few years, writers say their residual payments -- the money they receive when their work is re-run on cable -- should have grown proportionally. The writers are also demanding more freedom over creative issues. Some say the Writers Guild of America (WGA) may extend talks with Hollywood studios past tonight's contract expiration, if progress is being made.
