Hollywood producers say they are willing to meet with a federal mediator to try to break stalled contract talks with the Screen Actors Guild.SAG officials requested the mediator last weekend and say they will seek a strike authorization from its members if talks break down.

No date has been set yet for the first meeting.

Actors are asking for more compensation for new media, but the studios have said now is not the time to be seeking more money or to go on strike.
