'Family' discord: Creator sues

28 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fred Barron, creator of the hit British comedy My Family, has filed a lawsuit against producer-distributor DLT Entertainment in an effort to stop DLT from licensing the format rights to the show in the United States. This summer, DLT started exploring the possibilities of setting up a U.S. version of the hot BBC One series (HR 8/11). Barron's lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, quotes a clause from a 2002 agreement between Barron and DLT that the two sides "agree that they will mutually agree upon a strategy and plan for seeking to develop, market and produce a U.S. version of the series." The suit, filed by attorneys Martin Singer and Allison Hart, claims that in breach of the 2002 agreement, DLT "has previously and is currently unilaterally attempting to market and sell the format rights for a U.S. version of the series to various television networks in the U.S. without (Barron's) knowledge or consent." »
