It also reinforces the importance of treating performers with respect and dignity, and recognizing the value of their contributions to the entertainment industry.

Overall, the SAG-AFTRA Public Television Agreement is an important development for performers and public television stations alike. It represents a commitment to fairness, transparency, and respect for the people who make our entertainment possible. As the industry continues to evolve and change, agreements like this will be crucial in ensuring that performers are able to thrive and succeed.
