The anticipated return of David Letterman to the airwaves with his writers appears to be running into some kind of trouble. Here's the statement from the Writers Guild Web site:
Representatives from Worldwide Pants [Letterman's production company] and the Writers Guild of America, West and the Writers Guild of America, East met today. A lively exchange of information took place. The WGAW and WGAE will not comment further.
Nikki Finke adds a statement from Worldwide's Rob Burnett:
"We had a substantive discussion today with the WGA and look forward to continuing these talks next week."
