LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Production employees on "The Biggest Loser" are set to return to work, two weeks after walking out in a bid to get union representation and benefits.

Under a tentative deal announced Monday between the International Association of Theatrical Stage Employees and show's producer, Reveille, the 50-member crew unanimously approved a package that includes health benefits. Other terms of the agreement were not released.

"This agreement is a positive step forward for the crew of The Biggest Loser, especially in the area of health benefits. We are pleased to see them go back to work," said Mike Miller, a vp at the IATSE.
