“Walking Dead” creator Frank Darabont “holds nothing back” in a newly unsealed deposition that rips AMC executives, The Hollywood Reporter’s THR, Esq. reports.
“Darabont and his agents at CAA are pursuing claims that AMC breached his contract and deprived him of tens of millions of dollars in profits from the hit series by making a sweetheart deal licensing the show to itself,” THR reports. “Most recently, the case has turned its attention to whether AMC rightfully reduced his profit share as he left the show in the middle of the second season.”
The deposition recounts the early days of the hit series, alleging that even as “The Walking Dead” grew in popularity, AMC cut the show’s budget from $3.4 million an episode to $3 million, setting off “crisis-level problems arising on the first episode of the second season.”
