SAG to abide by Mormon deal

Summarized by Robert Starling

SAG to abide by Mormon deal
Hollywood Reporter: 4Jan99

The Screen Actors Guild has reached an agreement in principle with an arm of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the production of church-related industrial and educational films. An unusual -- but perfectly legal -- aspect of the contract allows the production company to require non-Mormon actors to sign agreements binding them "to live in accordance with church standards during the production."

The two-year "experimental" deal has been approved by SAG's board of directors, but must still be signed by SAG and church officials. SAG board minutes show that one top SAG official believes that the contract "will almost certainly constitute a tremendous amount of work over a long period of time" -- especially in Utah, where the church is headquartered.
