Production on the premiere of Survivor Season 29 will resume following a resolution to the earlier strike, Deadline reports:
It’s not a tribal council but it is a move towards a vote. After less than 12 hours, the strike by Survivor editors and other postproduction staff is over. Mark Burnett’s Island Post Productions has agreed to union recognition for the two dozen or so postproduction staff who walked off the job today. Talks with the Motion Picture Editors Guild, IATSE Local 700 are now set for August 15. In the meantime, I’ve learned that the picket line that went up today has been suspended and the Guild has instructed crew members to report for work at the company’s Santa Monica HQ tomorrow. Which means, work will resume on the premiere episode for Season 29 of the veteran reality show, which is scheduled to debut with a 90-minute episode on September 24 – a date that I’m told will not suffer being met despite today’s walkout.
