NBC Universal, Moore fight over Galactica webisodes

by on Oct.20, 2006, under General News

In what is likely to shape into a battle between the studios and the unions, NBC Universal (which owns the SCI FI Channel) is at odds with Battlestar Galactica producer Ron Moore over the compensation (or lack thereof) for the “webisodes” that have been produced for the web site. Moore believes residuals and/or compensation should be provided; the studio disagrees, saying they are “promotional material”. Moore has stopped producing the webisodes and refused to hand over the 10 already completed, but NBC seized them and filed unfair labor charges against the Writer’s Guild of America, which advised Moore to stop.
