Update for DGA Members Regarding the SAG-AFTRA Strike

Mimi Leder

July 14, 2023

As has been widely reported, SAG-AFTRA has called a strike which began on Friday, July 14 at 12:01 AM. With the actors on strike, most remaining scripted film and television production will be shut down. We strongly support SAG-AFTRA and their efforts to obtain a fair and reasonable contract, just as we support the WGA’s fight on behalf of writers.  We also know the impact the loss of work will have on our members and many others in our industry and recognize you may have some immediate questions.
