[TV] Frank Darabont Sues AMC Over The Walking Dead
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.17.2013



Frank Darabont and his talent agency have sued AMC over claims that he is owed profits from The Walking Dead. Deadline reports that Darabont, who ran the show during its first season and was let go a short way into the second season, filed suit against the network with the New York Supreme Court claiming that AMC used underhanded tactics in order to create a deficit for the series, which deprives him of profits he is entitled to receive. He and his agency CAA are asking for a better net profit definition.

Darabont addresses other complaints in the suit, including wrongful termination. He claims that he was fired without cause in order to avoid contractual obligations of an increased profit percentage, which would have vested fully at the end of the second season. He also says that per his contract he was supposed to be "locked as executive producer for the life of the Series" but was stripped of the title after he left.

The suit also argues that his contract allows him to have the right of "first negotiation" as to "any derivative production related to The Walking Dead," such as Talking Dead and the upcoming spin-off.

AMC has until mid-January to respond.
