CBS Studios has been sued by "Charmed" creator Constance M. Burge, who through her loan-out company Sidework, claims she was cheated out of millions due to faulty accounting, reports The Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood, Esq. blog.
In the lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Burge claims that her contract gave her fixed compensation and 7.5% of the "adjusted gross receipts" for the show," the story notes.
Burge alleges that CBS Studios shortchanged her and hasn’t allowed a complete audit of the series, the story says.
Burge claims that her auditors "uncovered substantial underreporting of income due to" her, the article adds. CBS Studios declined to comment. "Charmed" aired on the WB from 1998-2006 and starred Rose McGowan, Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano.
