US actors and TV networks agree to end casting couch

  • Print

The largest US actors' union and the four major television networks on Saturday agreed to limit auditions in private hotel rooms and homes, ratifying a guideline the screen actors' guild had enacted on its own following the #MeToo uproar, the union said.

SAG-AFTRA, which represents 160,000 actors, and management from ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract that also includes an array of pay increases, the guild said in a statement. The deal is subject to approval by the guild's board of directors next month.

The networks and union agreed to language similar to that from the union's own Guideline No. 1, issued in April, which called for an end to auditions, interviews and similar professional meetings in private hotel rooms or at private residences.
