LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Hollywood directors' union reached a contract deal with major film and television studios on Thursday, a source familiar with the negotiations said, confirming a report in Daily Variety.

A deal between the Directors Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers could hasten the settlement of a 10-week-old screenwriters' strike.
