Discovery Communications has been hit with a lawsuit stemming from its medical marijuana series "Weed Wars," according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood, Esq. blog.
Kylie Krabbe claims the media company stole her idea for a reality show focused on a medical marijuana dispensary, the story says. She alleges she won the right to pitch it to Discovery executives after taking it to an organized pitch session in 2010, the article adds.
She called the show "Greener Pastures," and it focused on the owner of a dispensary in Santa Barbara, the story says. She registered the treatment with the WGA before pitching it, the piece adds.
The suit alleges that Discovery initially was interested but then passed, calling it too "edgy," the story says.
"Weed Wars" debuted Dec. 1 on Discovery.
Discovery doesn’t comment on pending litigation, the piece adds.
