Gilmore Girls: Seasons is being sued!

Gilmore Girls: Seasons is being sued by Gavin Polone, a producer from the original show. But exactly why? Because Polone still thinks has a case for any future shows with these characters. Polone is suing Warner Bros. Television, claiming they owe him nearly $200,000 in compensation for the Gilmore Girls Revival Event Series. Here’s an excerpt from the lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.

Under Gavin Polone’s original “Operative Agreement” with Warner Bros. Television, the producer is entitled to $32,500 for each original episode of Gilmore Girls, produced after the year 2003. He is also entitled to a specific percentage of the Modified Adjusted Gross,” along with the Executive Producer credit in front of every episode. The lawsuit claims the producer is owed $195,000 for the four 90-minute episodes, at an adjusted rate of $48,750 per-episode, one and a half times the agreed-upon rate, since the episodes are 90 minutes long when the original episodes were 60 minutes long.

Gavin Polone’s lawsuit does not name Netflix as a defendant, and the producer is not trying to stop production on the revival series. (Source)
