Hollywood studios have put a new contract offer on the table for striking film and TV writers.
Producers say the offer would pay writers millions more for work that is shown on the Internet. The split over Web-based revenue has been a central issue in negotiations.
Writers want a break in talks until Tuesday so they can study the plan. Meanwhile, the union is calling on its members to continue their nearly month-long walkout.
The studio plan offers writers 130 million more in extra Internet-based cash over a three-year period. The writers have countered with a plan that would up that number to just over 150 million dollars.
Writers protested outside the studios of NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly" Thursday night. It's the first late-night talk show to resume production since the strike began.
