Show Developer Frank Darabont is suing the network for $280 million!
Frank Darabont is suing AMC for $280 million after claiming his team were denied their rightful share of profits from their work on The Walking Dead. Darabont, who is the former showrunner of the show, explicitly slammed the network, for “f---king up my show” during a string of irate emails sent in 2011.
Darabont developed and executively-produced TWD during its first season, while he also directed and wrote several episodes. He was fired from the show by AMC in June 2011 over disagreements with the network’s executives and budgeting problems.
Writing in an email to executive producer Gale Anne Hurd in June 2011, Darabont claimed the producers are incompetent, arrogant and “blind to the important beats”.
“I deserve better than a heart attack because people are too stupid to read a script and understand the words.”, Darabont said.
