Friday night, negotiations between the Writer's Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers broke down. Writers and studios disagree on payments for content that is viewed online; the writers have been on strike for almost five weeks.

Tomorrow, hundreds of crew members, stunt doubles, technicians and caterers, are expected to rally at the corner of Hollywood and Highland, to urge both sides to get back to bargaining.

NPR's Scott Simon gets the details about the negotiations from columnist Nikki Finke, who writes about the strike at her blog, Deadline Hollywood Daily.
