'The Walking Dead' lawsuit: Frank Darabont and CAA suing AMC over 'TWD' profits

See also

Former 'TWD' showrunner Frank Darabont and his agency, CAA, have filed a lawsuit against AMC, according to a Dec. 17 report by Deadline. Darabont has allegedly received no money as a profit participant and is accusing the network of setting an "unrealistically low license fee" for "The Walking Dead."

The paperwork claims that there are questionable accounting practices. "The Walking Dead" lawsuit also says that Frank Darabont was wrongfully terminated from "TWD" and that he should not only continue to receive an executive producer credit, but also wants to receive proceeds from "The Walking Dead," "The Talking Dead" and the upcoming spinoff. Darabont and CAA are seeking monetary damages. If the dispute goes to trial, a jury would decide the outcome, but Deadline believes that the chances of it actually making it to trial are small.

"The Walking Dead" lawsuit was filed with the New York Supreme Court on Dec. 17. Sources say that the former "TWD" showrunner and CAA attempted to resolve the issues with AMC, but were unsuccessful.
