The production company behind “Reba” has been hit with a lawsuit, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood, Esq. blog.
Claiming she has been cheated out of profits, Allison Gibson, who created and was a showrunner of "Reba," sued production company 20th Century Fox Television, the story reports.
Gibson claims in a lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court that she is entitled to a share of the show’s revenue and that 20th TV hasn’t properly accounted the portion, the story notes.
She alleges that the production company improperly reduced her 10% of modified adjusted gross through tactics such as lowering it to 7.5% because she left the show as its second season started, the story notes. Her suit claims she is owed at least $1.1 million in damages from the alleged improper profit calculation, the piece adds.
This marks the second time she has sued 20th, the story says.
"Ms. Gibson’s complaint, like the one she filed previously, lacks merit and includes claims she previously lost on in court," a representative from 20th TV said, according to the piece.
