Actors hoping for a new commercials contract will have to wait a little longer.
Negotiators with SAG-AFTRA and the Joint Policy Committee representing the advertising industry have agreed to extend for one week the agreements covering actors who work in television and radio.
The agreements are set to expire Sunday. Under the extension, the parties have agreed that the contracts will remain in effect through April 7, giving the parties more time to negotiate new agreements.
"Both parties look forward to continued productive negotiations under the mutually agreed upon and previously announced media blackout still in effect,'' the groups said in a statement. "We have no further comment."
