Faulty accounting is being blamed for the creator of the long-running supernatural CBS show missing out on millions of dollars!
Constance M. Burge says that her contract for the show gave her fixed compensation and 7.5% of the "Adjusted Gross Receipts" from the show.
But that's not what she got:
Burge claims that CBS Studios, which stepped into the shoes of producer Spelling Television, has shortchanged her and failed to allow a complete audit of the series. Even without being granted full access to the books and records, Burge claims her auditors "uncovered substantial underreporting of income due to" her, according to the suit.
If that's true, it's a bum deal and we don't doubt the courts will prove it and you'll be rewarded your money, Constance!
In the meantime, we'd like to thank you for the awesome series before the supernatural's take over and flooding of the markets! Fab job!
We'll be watching to see if justice is served!
