"Hollywood isn't run by liberals, it's run by companies, and you can look for a pretty long time before finding a liberal on the board of directors of any of those companies."—Jack Rudoph, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
"I know you make a living wage. I fought against it."—Jack Donaghy, Thirty Rock
The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers: The collective face of the major studios, which enters into negotiations with Unions in Hollywood and takes a hard line against labor.
During the 2007 Writer's Strike the AMPTP was led by Nick Counter and represented the interests of:
- 20th Century Fox (Also FOX)
- Universal (Also NBC)
- Walt Disney (also ABC)
- Warner Bros
- Metro Goldwyn Mayer
AMPTP contracts also cover nearly every studio or production house in Hollywood, but the minor studios are not represented in AMPTP decision-making, and frequently sign separate agreements with the unions during prolonged strikes. These agreements are superseded by the contracts that are ultimately agreed to at the end of these strikes.
