AMC Denies Claims in Frank Darabont Lawsuit Over ‘Walking Dead’ Profits

AMC Networks has filed a 10-page response to the lawsuit initiated in December by Frank Darabont over profits and payments related to “The Walking Dead.”

AMC flatly denies the allegations of self-dealing that are at the heart of Darabont’s suit, filed in New York’s State Supreme Court in December.

Darabont maintained that AMC improperly limited his profit participation in the series because it is also the production entity on the zombie drama that has become a runaway hit for the cabler. Darabont’s suit maintains AMC pays a less than market rate to license the show, which he developed for the cabler but was dismissed from after its first season.

AMC’s response, which is dry in comparison to the dramatic narrative sketched out in Darabont’s complaint, asks the court to dismiss the suit and asks that plaintiffs cover its legal fees.
