Fran Drescher Calls AMPTP’s Suspension Of Talks “Disrespectful” – Deadline

In an interview of the Today show this morning, SAG-AFTRA president Fran Drescher called the AMPTP’s walk out on strike negotiations this week was “wrong,” “unfair,” and “disrespectful.”

“It really came as a shock to me because what does that exactly mean and why would you walk away from the table?,” Drescher said. “It’s not like we’re asking for anything that’s so outrageous. It’s so wrong. And it’s so unfair that they walked out of the meeting, and so disrespectful.”

Watch the interview below.

Drescher added that the AMPTP reps “talk at you – they really don’t want to hear what you have to say or why you’re saying it.”

Yesterday, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos said during a Bloomberg Screentime event that SAG-AFTRA had asked for a levy on every subscriber to streaming service, which led to the breakdown in talks to end the actors strike.

“Last night, they introduced a levy on subscribers on top of [other] areas,” the Co-CEO said. He called it a “bridge too far”.

Meanwhile, SAG-AFTRA has canceled picketing in New York and Los Angeles today due to concerns over potential safety related to the situation in Israel and Gaza. A former Hamas leader has urged supporters to protest today.
