Letterman To Cut Deal To Bring Writers Back To "Late Show"
Deadline Hollywood Daily:
UPDATED THROUGHOUT: Sources tell me the Writers Guild Of America is intending to grant David Letterman's independent production company Worldwide Pants an "interim agreement" not involving CBS that allows the Late Show host and his writers to return to the airwaves during the strike. This comes after Letterman's long-time executive producer Rob Burnett, who's also president/CEO of Dave's production company Worldwide Pants, has repeatedly tried to secure a WGA waiver for The Late Show. (See below for details of the bills Letterman has been paying since his show went off the air.)
