According to Deadline Hollywood on Dec. 17, Frank Darabont, who was AMC's "The Walking Dead's" original developer of the series, is now filing a lawsuit against the cable channel AMC for profits made from the show he had produced. His agency known as the CAA is also joining in on the suit.

AMC is being accused by Darabont for participating in what is known as "self dealing" by bringing a standard down to a significantly low level on a license fee for the show. It is felt that questionable accounting practices are at hand and thus stripping profits from those who are entitled to reasonable compensation.

Also, a wrongful termination case is on the books for this lawsuit and Darabont feels that he is entitled to "producer credit" as the show marches forward. Entitlements to the former showrunner and producer include the "Talking Dead" post show and other proceeds from the future spin-off that Robert Kirkman had developed.

AMC had no comment in regards to the the lawsuit and there is an "unspecified amount" being requested, but to be determined by a jury.
