The Directors Guild of America has reached a tentative deal for a new three-year contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, the guild announced late Friday.

Negotiations, which began on December 5, concluded December 23 and were led by Negotiations Committee Co-Chairs Michael Apted (pictured above) and Thomas Schlamme, and the Guild’s chief negotiator, National Executive Director Jay D. Roth. 

Details of the tentative collective bargaining agreement agreement will be released after the agreement has been submitted to the Guild’s National Board for approval at a special board meeting. 

The DGA’s current contracts were set to expire on June 30, 2017.
