As the writers' strike enters its thirteenth week, another studio has singed an exclusive agreement with the WGA. According to Variety, RKO has jumped on the production deal bandwagon and will be back to work soon.

RKO's current production schedule is to be announced later this week. It includes several original screen projects as well as a number of remakes from the RKO vaults.

RKO's Ted Hartley stated, "The negotiation with the guild was smooth and businesslike; they kept their agreement and we kept ours. It all moved ahead at a steady pace and resulted in good feelings on both sides."
