Saban Inks SAG Deal
Saban Entertainment, which has been criticized by actors for what they called low pay and poor working conditions, reached an agreement with the Screen Actors Guild last week.
The agreement, which covers performers in live-action television programs, marked the completion of a series of negotiations between SAG and Saban.
In February the two parties signed a similar agreement covering performers for movies, TV animation and dubbing, said SAG spokeswoman Katherine Moore.
The agreements follow a period of tense relations over Saban’s apparent refusal to be a SAG agreement signatory. Saban is a major producer of children’s programming. One of its most successful shows is “Power Rangers,” which uses animated characters and live-action performers.
