Hannah Montana Creators SUE DISNEY

disney-sued


Two of the ‘Hannah Montana’ franchise creators have sued Disney Channel for more than $5 million in profits from the show. Barry O’Brien and Richard Correll say they’ve been denied their fair share of the Miley Ray Cyrus series.

O’Brien and Correll created the show with Michael Poryes in 2005. They now say they’re owed millions in pre-negotiated percentage-based bonuses based on their back-end deals and Writers Guild of America requirements for writers who receive ‘created by’ credits.

That Disney has denied repeated requests for payment and thwarted attempts to audit profits from the show. Correll claims he was wrongfully terminated from the show and ‘blackballed’ from future directing gigs by Disney.

Correll believes ‘the real reason for Defendants’ termination and blackballing was Disney’s desire to retaliate’ against him ‘for a) seeking compensation owing to Correll’ and O’Brien and ‘b) their testimony against Disney in the WGA Arbitration,’ according to the complaint. Poryes, the third ‘Hannah’ creator, sued Disney on similar grounds in October 2008.

    You are an idiot. They CREATED the show. HM has made Dinsey almost a billion dollars in merchandise, CD sales, concerts, etc. They deserve every penny of their money! DIsney is known for exploiting its employees ( I should know, I used to be one of them) and I hope the writers win their case.

    ^ Actually above person you are the idiot, have you ever heard that PEOPLE LIE. I call bullshit on this story for the simple fact that they waited 5 years to do anything about it. I am sure they could have done something a LONG time ago. BTW, like hell you were an employee, if your that old wtf are you doing on Oceanup ? Creepy fucker.

    its OU,what did you expect?

  • sAnonymous

    Shy is it that whenever there is something in the new about Hannah Montana, they use a picture of Miley, but when there is something going on with Miley, seems like half the time they use a picture of her dress as Hannah Montana. Don’t people get it, she is trying to be recognized as herself not her character, so why do people keep treating things as if her and her character are one in the same. Wno one else is treated that way.
