“Bones” stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz are joining executive producer Barry Josephson in suing Fox for unpaid profits. The actors filed a complaint Monday in the Los Angeles Superior Court alongside author and executive producer Kathy Reichs, claiming that 20th Century Fox cheated them out of “tens of millions of dollars” in profits by withholding documents and using fraudulent accounting. The lawsuit alleges that auditing has uncovered that the stars and Reichs, whose books served as the inspiration for the series, “were being cheated out of more than $100 million in gross revenues and being overcharged many additional millions of dollars. »

Just days after Ep Barry Josephson sued Fox over profit participation and sketchy accounting practices, Bones stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz and Ep Kathleen Reichs now are going after the broadcaster too for "tens of millions" they claim they are owed. "Bones’ longevity has made it a cash cow for Fox," said the plaintiffs of the currently 11-season show in a remarkable 8-claim complaint filed today in L.A. Superior Court (read it here).

The litigation over Bones profits is getting some star power. Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz, stars of the longest-running drama series in Fox history, along with author and executive producer Kathy Reichs, have filed their own lawsuit claiming they have been shortchanged "tens of millions of dollars" in profits by producer 20th Century Fox Television, the Fox network and affiliated companies. The trio's lawsuit claims they saw zero profits for years despite the success of the show. The suit follows a similar case filed Wednesday by Barry Josephson, one of the show’s executive producers, who also cried foul over

In the ninth episode of Season 11, titled “The Cowboy in the Contest” and airing Dec. 10, Booth and Brennan undergo one of their well-loved undercover operations, to look into shenanigans at an Old West-theme shooting competition.

In one of the more fabulously worded lawsuits you'll read today, the executive producer of Bones is suing Fox for — wait for it — "accounting chicanery." Barry Josephson, who has produced Bones for all 11 seasons, now says the network has cheated him out of potentially millions. In the suit, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Josephson claims Fox Networks CEO Peter Rice and other Fox execs "fraudulently threatened" him into accepting a lower license fee or else his show would be canceled. He even says he was tricked into agreeing to such fees, claiming that Fox execs lied to him about the other participants' willingness to accept the low fee, including the show's stars, Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz.Citing "Hollywood accounting" for Fox's shady business tactics, Josephson claims to have discovered in his audit of the show's first seven seasons that the company has underreported millions in revenue.

Fox has released its schedule for the new year, and Bones is not on it. If and when the second half of Bones season 11 will air is to be determined. While this doesn't mean the long-running procedural has been cancelled, it hardly seems like a good sign. Despite flagging season 10 ratings, Fox renewed the series for an 11th season.
As of November 5, 2015, the eleventh season finds Bones, over all, down in the ratings. To date, it is averaging a 1.23 in the 18-49 demographic, with a season-to-date average of 5.34 total audience members.
While star David Boreanaz is looking forward to the end of the show with season 11, new showrunner, Michael Peterson, is on record as saying he wants a 12th season and more. The cast of Bones includes: Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor, »
Bones is currently airing season 11 on Fox, but fans might be in for "many more" seasons if the new showrunner has his way. Michael Peterson joined the series starring Emily Deschanel and David Boreanz in its fourth season, and now he is the man in charge.
Peterson spoke with Assignment X about the recent crossover episode between Bones and Sleepy Hollow, and he was asked about the series possibly ending this season. He gave an honest answer to that question.
"I want to do it forever. I’ve loved doing it for seven years, I think there’s a lot more story left to tell, and my plan always is to keep going. Eventually, the studio and the network will tell me when I have to stop, but I don’t ever want to stop."
Earlier this year, Boreanz said that this would be »

Happy Hollow-ween, Sleepyheads! (And, yes, it took me two seasons and change to come up with that.) Show of hands: Who’d never watched an episode of Bones before last night’s crossover special? Because I saw at least one Sleepy Hollow fan on Twitter last week admit to being a Bones noob, I’m assuming we are many, if not legion. (Isn’t that a saying? Opinions on Twitter are like cockroaches: Find one, and you’ll know there’s a lot more where that came from?)So let’s start by playing “Bonin’ Up on Bones.” Bones is a forensic crime procedural currently in its 11th season, starring Emily Deschanel as Temperance “Bones” Brennan, ace investigator of corpses, and David Boreanaz as FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. I guess that over the course of the past decade, Bones and Booth have coupled up and (apologies in advance) boned, »

Raise your hand if you went into the Bones and Sleepy Hollow crossover episodes incredibly confused as to how they would make any sense whatsoever! And raise your hand if you finished the episodes thinking, "Hey, that wasn't so strange after all!" Okay, yes, it was very weird to see Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel), who deal with real-life crimes and decomposing bodies, working with Mills (Nicole Beharie) and Crane (Tom Mison), who deal with spells, demons and other supernatural problems. But, truthfully, the shows both have the same fun, playful tone, so it wasn't too jarring to see the Jeffersonian crew on the Sleepy Hollow turf and vice versa. The highlights: Normalcy. »
Fox’s “Bones” and “Sleepy Hollow” are getting into the Halloween spirit with a one-night crossover event on Oct. 29, and if Variety’s exclusive sneak peek from the “Sleepy Hollow” installment is anything to go by, things are a little awkward between the crime-solving teams.
Despite the tension — and Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan’s (Emily Deschanel) desire to leave work early to put the finishing touches on their kids’ Halloween costumes — “Sleepy Hollow” showrunner Clifton Campbell says the two duos will find plenty in common in the spooky special episodes, which kick off when Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Agent Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) stop by the Jeffersonian to try and claim some headless remains.
“Pairing them up together is something that I think our fans and their fans will enjoy seeing as they process the same case together,” Campbell teases. “At a certain point midway, when we pass »

Ahead of “Bones” and “Sleepy Hollow” airing crossover episodes Thursday, Fox has released a new teaser giving fans an inside look at the Halloween event. In the video preview, the stars of the two shows, David Boreanez and Emily Deschanel of “Bones” and Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie of “Sleepy Hollow” tease the crossover event in which they appear on each others’ shows. While Mison’s Ichabod Crane promises “a mystery of the highest magnitude,” and “Bones'” Jack Hodgins suspects “something otherworldly,” Deschanel is less impressed. “Just like, basically, another ‘Bones’ episode,” she jokes.

Reason-minded Dr. Temperance Brennan and the resurrected Ichabod Crane are debating love in the Jeffersonian lab.
It’s a mid-September day, and the production team behind the Atlanta-shot Sleepy Hollow has taken over Bones‘ Los Angeles set, decked out with Halloween flourishes, to film a scene for the Fox dramas’ upcoming crossover event.

“Faith results from our fear of death, art from our ability to discern an attractive mate and love from our need to procreate,” Emily Deschanel’s Brennan explains.

Bones and Sleepy Hollow might have similarly playful tones (and excellent banter between the two crime-fighting duos at their core), but it's still a little crazy that the two Fox hits are doing a crossover. And yet, here we are—with E! News' exclusive sneak peek at Sleepy Hollow's Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) making their first appearance on Bones when they arrive at the Jeffersonian to talk to Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Hodgins (Tj Thyne) about a set of remains. There's a Nordic rune involved, so naturally conspiracy theorist Hodgins is into the possibly "otherworldly" case. Enter Ichabod and Abbie, who are clearly ready to take on the »

The Bones fairies have been taunting fans with the concept of a crossover between Bones and Sleepy Hollow since well before BuddyTV talked with Emily Deschanel and Executive Producer Michael Peterson about what we can look forward to in season 11. Boneheads have been scratching their heads in fear of this tightrope act going sideways. If that happens, we wonder, how will we ever trust them again?
How, indeed? It is too much to ask for these two universes -- one focused on evidence-based crime solving, the other centered around the unlikely pairing of a modern day police lieutenant and a resurrected 250-year-old Washington emissary who together fight supernatural demons -- to solve both a Bonesian homicide and save the city from zombies? Well, it is a mighty tall order, my friends. Who else but Bones (and Sleepy Hollow) could pull it off?
"Dead Men Tell No Tales" -- Booth and Brennan from Bones are introduced to the supernatural on Part Two of the special: With Brennan (guest star Emily Deschanel) and Booth (guest star David Boreanaz) in tow, Abbie and Crane set out to prove that supernatural forces are at play when a mysterious death plagues the FBI. As Pandora unleashes a force to awaken the dangerous Red Coat General Howe, both teams must find a way to save the town from the British Army of the Undead. Can the power of Booth and Brennan combined with Abbie and Crane be enough to stop Pandora's evil forces?
