The creators of the “Major Dad” television series have sued Universal City Studios for not paying them their share of syndication revenues.John Stephens and Richard C. Okie, in a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, say they are owed $ 1,440,000 each under 1989 agreements with Universal that called for payments to each of them of $ 15,000 per episode once the show was sold into syndication. According to the suit, Universal has claimed that a sale to USA Network and to foreign markets is not syndication. Stephens and Okie were to receive a third of the syndication money when the series was sold, another third when released, and a final third one year after release.
