Don Johnson Gets Over $50 Million From Miami Vice Nash Bridges

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

Guess the judge must have been a Nash Bridges fan.

Don Johnson brought Rysher entertainment and two other firms associated with the show to court, seeking profits that were withheld from him. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that Johnson is owed over $28 million in interest.

A Jury had previously ruled that Johnson is entitled to $23.2 million in profits withheld from him by the Nash Bridges crew, based on the fact that he owns half the copyright to the series.

In total, Don Johnson has over $51 million coming to him from Nash Bridges, and he’s entitled to half the future earnings from syndication of the show. Bravo!

Do U think Don Johnson deserves all the money he was awarded?

    He is responsible for one of the 3 greatest shows of my life, Miami Vice.
    The other two being Knight Rider and Magnum PI.

    If he owned part of it then he should be paid. But, good luck with that.

    if the judge ruled that it was his money then of course he deserves it. and, wow, he still looks kind of hot. it would be nice to see him in a new show soon…

    What kind of stupid question is that? Of course he deserves it. It was his show, he made successful, he owned half the program, so the rights and profits are his. Case closed.
