Tyler Perry Studios, WGA Reach Agreement

Deal covers residuals, other benefits for guild writers

However, as a preamble to posting photos from the two-day event, Perry wrote on his Website that he was being “attacked” but he did not clarify in what way or allude to accusations made by the WGA.

Perry dedicated three of the five sound stages at his production studio to Cicely Tyson, Sidney Poitier, and Ruby Dee and the late Ossie Davis. The fourth sound studio will be named for Quincy Jones and the fifth has not been dedicated. Perry signed a new three-year, first look deal, last June, with Lionsgate film studio, which covers his upcoming theatrical and home entertainment product.

    Perry is looking more and more like BET’s Bob Johnson. It’s great that Perry’s employing black people–what’s he going to do, hire white writers for HOP?–but that doesn’t give him license to exploit black people by not paying them what they are worth. Instead, Perry still clings to his chitlin’ circuit theater negotiating style (jus’ be happy you workin’), which will only lead his career in the same direction as Bob Johnson’s: a rich black man who is a pariah in his own community, and whose legacy will be a footnote in black history.

    Perry may be an inspiration for many but I am beginning to wonder if some of the bad press about Perry is true. Other than SAG writers last year, Perry’s new President did background checks on staff and right before the swearing in of Barack Obama, they fired them. Many worked for Perry for years and thought they had gotten a clean start working there. One broke down and cried. No, I don’t think I will buy or tell friends to buy his anything. I don’t however wish him any bad luck. He is just not smelling “holy” to me. It is something about his soul that bothers some.
