An Emmy Award-winning writer is suing the makers of Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookery show - claiming he was never paid for his work.
But the show - due to air this autumn - has been hit with legal action from Ben Karlin, a former head writer for Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, who claims to have been approached to "conceptualise and oversee" a companion book to the programme in 2007.
Karlin has filed papers in New York accusing production company chief Charles Pinsky of approving his concept for the guide but then delaying giving him a written contract and eventually dismissing him without pay.

Pinsky's attorney Leslie Ben-Zvi has hit back at the suit, insisting Karlin has misrepresented the facts.
