By ANDREW DALTON (AP Entertainment Writer) LOS ANGELES (AP) — Union leaders and Hollywood studios reached a tentative agreement Sunday to end a historic screenwriters strike after nearly five months, though no deal is yet in the works for striking actors. The Writers Guild of America announced the deal in a joint statement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, the group that represents studios, streaming services and production companies in negotiations. “WGA has reached a tentative agreement with the AMPTP,” the guild said in an email to members. “This was made possible by the enduring solidarity of WGA members and extraordinary support of our union siblings who joined us on the picket lines for over 146 days.” The three-year contract agreement — settled on after five marathon days of renewed talks by negotiators WGA and the AMPTP — must be approved by the guild’s board and members before the strike officially ends. In a longer message from the guild shared by members on social media, the writers were told the strike is not over and no one was to return to work

Surveillance video captured smash-and-grab thieves hitting two Silver Lake businesses in the early morning hours Sunday, who ended up leaving more of a mess than getting away with any valuables. The incident happened at around 3 a.m. in the 3800 block of Sunset Boulevard. Their likely target was Undefeated, a high-end sneaker store. However, that store has been broken into three times before and now have metal gates protecting the shop in both the front and the back. “They just happened to break into the wrong door, just a maintenance door,” Leo Valsquez, who works at Undefeated, told KTLA. “A year ago, they broke in and sledgehammered through it, and this time, they were out of luck.” The supervisor at neighboring Oakberry Açai Bowl, Maria Novaes, also believes the burglars thought they were breaking into the back of the shoe store, but an hour after they left, the same crew returned and broke into her shop. “It’s sad because we work hard every day and it just seems like things keep happening,” she told KTLA’s Jennifer McGraw.

SAN JOSE – The Sharks scored three goals on their first six shots of the preseason and earned a 5-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday at SAP Center. Defenseman Henry Thrun had three points in the first period, including a goal just 24 seconds in as his wrist shot from just inside the blue line got past Golden Knights goalie Jiri Patera. Thrun also assisted on Tomas Hertl’s goal at the 9:03 mark of the first period and scored on another shot from the point on a power play with 40 seconds left before intermission, helping the Sharks win their exhibition season opener before an announced crowd of 9,785. Forward Nathan Todd and defenseman Kyle Burroughs also scored for San Jose, which, like Vegas, only dressed a handful of players who are still expected to be in the NHL when the two teams meet Oct. 12 in the regular season opener. Starting goalie Kaapo Kahkonen, in his second full season with the Sharks, made 32 saves, including 19 in the first two periods. Kahkonen is expected to split time in net this
LOS ANGELES — When the Giants embarked on this trip 10 days ago, they were firmly in the playoff race. Riding high off a 5-1 homestand, their postseason odds, according to FanGraphs, stood at 47.5%. As recently as the last day of August, their chances were as high as 67.1%. Walked off Sunday night by the Dodgers, 3-2, they had fallen to 0.2% by the time they boarded their charter flight home. It was their eighth loss in 10 games on this disastrous trip, and it played out similarly to many of their previous 78. There wasn’t a pitcher who completed five innings, the little offense they produced came on one swing of the bat, and they left the bases loaded twice, including in the top of the ninth when Mitch Haniger went down swinging. “At the end of the day, I’m just trying to work hard, get better and help the team win, and unfortunately I haven’t been able to come through in situations like that,” said Haniger, whose batting average fell to a career-worst .207 in the first year of a $43.5 million

Hollywood studios and screenwriters have reached a tentative deal to end the nearly five-month-long strike that has largely shuttered production of film and television in the world’s entertainment hub, the Associated Press is reporting. Negotiation meetings between the sides have made considerable progress in recent weeks, which may be attributed to the presence of four top executives: Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav, Disney’s Bob Iger, NBCUniversal’s Donna Langley and Netflix’s Ted Sarandos. Nearly 20,000 writers have been without work or pay since May 2 as negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents studios, halted over the summer. The WGA began its strike on May 2 with the Screen Actors Guild joining them in striking on July 14, marking the first time in over 60 years both unions have been on strike at the same time. Striking writers say they were split with producers over issues such as higher residual pay, viewership transparency from streaming services, the size of writing staff on shows and the use of artificial intelligence in the creation of scripts. The actors strike has
