Pilots Overwhelmingly AFTRA Again
Digital Media Law
FEBRUARY 8, 2010
About 60 pilots for scripted network primetime programs will be shot under AFTRA contracts this year, while few – or perhaps none – will be produced under SAG jurisdiction, according to sources close to the two unions, who spoke on condition of anonymity. This continues a trend that began last year, when roughly 90% of pilots (and 83% of pilot pickups ) went AFTRA. So, AFTRA’s reach is growing in network primetime scripted programming.
