The writers’ strike may be at an end as early as Wednesday. The Writers Guild of America yesterday approved a special 48-hour vote among its 10,500 members to end the strike. The strike began last November, bringing production of films and television series to an abrupt halt. If an agreement is reached, new episodes of television shows could air in four to six weeks. The new deal would run through to May 1, 2011. Lost, which just began airing its new season last month, would continue on without interruption; while 24, which has several episodes ready to air, would finally begin its season. Other shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, Desperate Housewives and House will come back as soon as new episodes are written, filmed and edited.
