[Gossip] Showtime Being Sued By Man Who Claims He Came Up With Concept Of Ray Donovan
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.14.2014

According to TMZ, Showtime is being sued by writer Brian Larsen, who claims he came up with the idea of Ray Donovan, a show where a middle-aged man fixes things and kills people for money. Larsen says in 2010, he pitched the script to a Showtime executive who said she would "pitch like hell" to get it online but Larsen was ignored.

He said his script had a middle-aged fixer who plans killings with "black-market pros". There was a storyline of a basketball player in a sex scandal (the show had a similar story). The fixer had a brother who is a screw-up, he has a bad relationship with a Catholic priest and he has a conflict with killing people and doing the right thing. Larsen claims his script says there is a moral cliffhanger in every episode and there's a conflict between the fixer's personal and professional lives.

Larsen wants the production stopped, along with money.
