Executive Producer Matt Weiner Says: "We went back last week, because Lionsgate signed an interim agreement with the guild—same as Letterman's—so we are in full preproduction, which means writing is under way now. We should be ready to air by the end of the summer. I don't have a date—and even if I did, I don't think it's my information to give.
"[As for the strike], I've never been prouder of being a writer or a member of the WGA. The solidarity, mutual respect and democratic open-mindedness of my fellow writers has been amazing. Equally, I am in awe of the heartfelt support and genuine sacrifices made by the artists, artisans, technicians and teamsters of our cast and crews—not to mention the people of Los Angeles who honked their horns, donated food and encouraged us with kindness. The strike has been a dark but important moment for many of us—generations of writers shared wisdom, laughter and resolve, and I believe, despite the hardships, this strike will be remembered in the end as an energizing and inspiring experience. We are grateful to do what we do, we are grateful we're all in it together, and now we are grateful that our studio partners feel the same way."
