Has Jon Gosselin taught you all nothing! You never mess with the network when you are a one-trick pony reality star! They OWN you!!!
The Discovery Network is going after Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand, stars of The Deadliest Catch, for $3 million in damages after the pair up and decided not to live up to their contracts.
According to the lawsuit, the network was in the middle of producing a one-time special called Hillstranded when the men abruptly pulled out of the project. Seems that the footage was already shot and edited, but now required the much needed commentary from Andy and Jon to tie the whole special together. When the Discovery people reached out to them to set up a time and place for their interviews, all they received in response was an email from their lawyer letting the producers know that they shouldn't bother trying to contact them.
The suits at Discovery say that the men are in breach of their contract and have cost the network significant ratings and substantial losses. Now, they are fighting back!
And, as we all well know from the last time, the Discovery network tends to win these types of things!
