SAG-AFTRA Approves Deal Allowing Actors to Appear on Multiple Shows

You might start seeing a lot more of your favorite TV actors

The union approved a deal on Saturday allowing the actors to appear in multiple shows at the same time.

SAG-AFTRA has been lobbying for a decade to curtail so-called “exclusivity” agreements.

These agreements blocked TV series regulars from taking other jobs while they are on hiatus.

The agreement is approved by the union’s national board on Saturday.

According to it, producers will be required to give TV actors a three-month window after each season in which they can take any job they want.

That means that stars of shows may start appearing more often as guest stars — or even as regulars — on shows on other platforms and networks.

The new agreement will apply to work under contracts entered into on or after Jan. 1.
