Alert the media! Oh, that’s us. Don Johnson invented Webisodes, and did so "long before anyone else in television was thinking about the Internet," the Los Angeles Times reports.
That’s just one of the revelations in testimony Johnson has given in a lawsuit with which he is involved. According to the article, "Through his production company Don Johnson Productions, Johnson is suing Rysher Entertainment, which bankrolled "Nash Bridges," for half of all profit from the series. His attorney has claimed that the actor is entitled to tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars."
Talking about going into "Nash Bridges" following his starring role on "Miami Vice," Johnson told the court, the article says, "I was the ‘it’ guy for television and, you know, for pop culture at the time."
The Times article also reports that "as attorneys went through the contract paragraph by paragraph, some jurors looked nearly catatonic."
