The last we heard, Patty Caruso was looking for $5 million for a show she had worked on tirelessly for two years called Grace's Cases to be helmed by Nancy Grace.
Now, we're hearing that she's actually looking for triple that — $15 million!
Here's the age-old story:
Caruso claims that for two years she “worked tirelessly and successfully to develop, market and sell a syndicated television series featuring Grace – all in support of her future role as executive producer of the series.” In October 2009, news broke that the CBS sold the series in 80 percent of the U.S syndicated market and Caruso said the two, accompanied by their husbands, went out for a celebratory dinner.
However, in the Spring of 2010 – despite Grace’s reassurances that CBS would make Caruso an offer and she would not proceed without her – Caruso alleges the TV host signed on to host “Swift Justice With Nancy Grace” without her as executive producer.
It does sound like to us that Caruso may have been harshly left in the dust. Especially if she put 2 hard years of effort into it!
But we guess at this point it'll be up to the courts to decide if she's actually owed anything, and the amount of which she is owed.
Let's see what goes down!
