Frank Darabont, the guy famous for being showrunner of The Walking Dead, then famous for being the fired showrunner of The Walking Dead, is now a little more famous for suing AMC.
Darabont, who has been outspoken about his ousting from the show by network execs (supposedly), had been quiet until he started bombing around doing interviews for LA Noir, at which point reporters knew what people REALLY wanted to know about.
In case the point wasn’t made then, it’s being made now. With a lawsuit alleging that AMC never paid Darabont for his profits interest in the successful show, meaning that they owe him tens of millions of dollars.
More specifically, this claims that AMC uses an unrealistic licensing fee amount to show the program is barely, or not, profitable.
They should make a show about the forensic accounting we’re gonna see here!
