LOS ANGELES (AP) - The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists says its contract talks with producers will go ahead as planned on Wednesday.

The announcement came late Tuesday, the day that studio talks with the larger Screen Actors Guild were to temporarily end.

No agreement had been announced in those talks.

The smaller union says it will impose a press blackout on details of its discussions, which involve actors on primetime TV shows such as "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
