Greg Daniels Discusses Strike with Hollywood Panel

Hollywood Reporter states:
"So, where do we go from here?

That was the question posed Tuesday to a panel of industry leaders at the Hollywood Radio & Television Society's Newsmaker Luncheon -- a little more than six weeks after the 100-day WGA strike came to an end. The answer still seems unclear.

When the strike ended, "The Office" executive producer Greg Daniels said, Universal Media Studios, which produces the NBC comedy, took writers from several of its shows out for a nice dinner to make amends. Since then, he said, things haven't been as contentious between the networks/studios and writers as they were during the strike.

"The executives in the scripted entertainment department are glad to see the strike over, and all I get (from my writers) is relief to be back to work," he said, adding that his writers are at work on another set of "Office" webisodes, following the 10 that became available in summer 2006 on"

Variety has:
""The Office" exec producer Greg Daniels said he believed the sacrifice made by scribes wouldn't be made up by their new gains, but that it was a price they had to pay for future generations.

"If our kids want to be writers, they'll have a better framework," he said."
