Steven Seagal: Lawman Prompts Lawsuit!

Reality production company Genuine Productions, is suing Steven Seagal, A&E and ICM for the alleged theft of the upcoming series Steven Seagal: Lawman, which follows the action star's work as a New Orleans deputy sheriff.

We're astounded that someone wants to lay claim to this!

A&E preemptively filed a suit on Tuesday stating that the network cannot be held liable for making the series because it was not the same idea that was originally brought in.

Genuine Productions claim that they convinced Seagal to do a reality show two years ago and sealed the deal with a verbal agreement.

Haven't they ever seen People's Court?! That's always a bad idea!

According to court documents, "Seagal did not agree to sign anything in writing but, said that his handshake is his bond and that 'we have a deal.'"

The original gist of the show featured wannabe action stars competing to become Seagal's protege.

Sounds like a poor man's version of the Chuck Norris movie Sidekick!

Although A&E was interested in working with the actor, they wanted something more grounded in reality, yet the plaintiffs claim to have emails expressing interest from network execs following the pitch.

The production company believes that Seagal's reps squeezed them out of the deal by claiming a reality show would be beneath the actor and tarnish his reputation!

The fact that they believe he has a reputation to protect brings the LOLs!

We can't wait to see what he's like as part of law enforcement!

    UGH!!! I hate Steven Seagal….he's really a terrible actor and I don't know how he has gotten so many movies!!! Plus he's a bit long in the tooth now and should retire to an island somewhere with some dumb young thing who will happily stay with him til death do them part. Isn't that what all the washed up old actors/whatevers do?

    I like Seagal. There are some pretty interesting things written about him and his life on the net, let me say. He'll be back in the gym to get in some kind of shape for this, which is a good thing. He's always done a good job of carrying leading man.

    How does a deputy sheriff who's also the reincarnation of Buddha deal with the scumbags he meets on the mean streets of NOLA???? Does he meditate them into jail?
