The “Full House” creator says the “Fuller House” showrunner was “motivated by a secret hatred of him” and conspired to get him fired from the Netflix spinoff, The Hollywood Reporter’s THR, Esq. reports, citing a lawsuit filed by “Full House” and “Fuller House” creator Jeff Franklin.
Franklin alleges that Bryan Behar helped get him thrown off the series during his renegotiations with Warner Bros. so Behar could take over as showrunner, THR reports.
The report quotes attorney Larry Stein writing in the complaint: “As the heart and soul of the Full House franchise, these tremendously successful shows are the great joy of Franklin’s professional life, and the cast has become a second family to him for over 30 years.”
THR adds: “Franklin’s run on the reboot was cut short last year when his contract wasn’t renewed amid reports of ‘behavioral’ issues — which he now says were fabricated by Behar in an effort to take over ‘Fuller House’ by taking advantage of #MeToo sensitivities.”
