ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) to take a leisurely approach to find a new executive director. SAG abruptly fired chief executive officer Greg Hessinger in October 2005. Former chief financing officer Peter Frank has been serving as the guild's interim chief since fall 2005. The lack of an executive director at SAG is causing unease among studios and networks, even with negotiations on the guild's film-television contract.
