The Writers Guild of America has signed an interim agreement with the independent studio Lionsgate. The studio's deal with the WGA is similar to deals made with United Artists, Spyglass Entertainment, Mandate Films, MRC, Worldwide Pants, Jackson Bites and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.

Over the last few years, Loinsgate has become a large independent force in the film and television industry. The company saw continued success by branching into the family entertainment and video-on-demand markets.

The WGA strike has been in effect since November 5th.
