Do you recall a few years ago how the original showrunner for AMC's The Walking Dead was dumped in a huff by AMC, then he went off on a lawsuit binge? Something about not getting paid properly or what not, and now, it seems the theme is coming up again.
Well, the group of people suing AMC has gotten a bit bigger now.
It seems that, according to the lawsuits, AMC is not sharing all the profits it is reaping in from all the Walking Dead spinoff series, like Fear the Walking Dead or The Talking Dead. And they may have a point.
The parties who are lobbing this lawsuit include Robert Kirkman (The comic/source creator) and producers Gale Anne Hurd, Glen Mazzara and David Alpert.
As per the lawsuit,
"The defendant AMC Entities exploited their vertically integrated corporate structure to combine both the production and the exhibition of TWD, which allowed AMC to keep the lion's share of the series’ enormous profits for itself and not share it with the Plaintiffs, as required by their contracts."
Well, we'll see what comes of this new tift!
Oh, BTW, the lawsuit was lobbed out there the day after Kirkman signed a deal with Amazon for first-looks with his production company Skybound Entertainment.
If you're a Brooke Shields fan, you'll love to know that she's joining Law & Order: SVU in a recurring role! Now the network is keeping a tight lid on what her role will be, but they hinted that her character will shake up Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) world.
