BONES RULING CHANGES EVERYTHING
Posted: 050219

Royalties and Payments at the Core of the Lawsuit Ruling

According to THR FOX has been hit with a $178.7 million judgment by an arbitrator over its profit participation dispute with the producers of Bones. The ruling slammed senior Fox executives for giving unconvincing and laughable testimony. The judge believed the studio had a "cavalier attitude toward its wrongdoing" and the network engaged in "reprehensible conduct." The suit was filed over FOX selling the rights to the series to Hulu, which is as of this moment, is partially owned by Fox. By doing to Fox undercut the amount of money that could have been made by Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Barry Josephson and Cathy Reichs. It’s called ‘self-dealing.’ The studios undercharge their corporate partners for the broadcast rights, which mean the show makes less money and key talent and producers get less than they would have if the rerun rights were sold elsewhere. In fact, the same Fox rep signed both sides of the Fox-Hulu agreement for the first season of the series. The ruling came down before the Disney/FOX deal was final. Disney is already trying to get a larger share of Hulu. And ironically, Disney will be getting two of the three Fox executives involved in the dispute. 21st Century Fox is trying to lower the punitive damages of $128.5 million by saying the arbitrator couldn’t make such a ruling but doesn’t dispute the actual damages of $50.2 million. This isn’t the first time FOX has been sued over show profits since Chris Carter sued them and won over the amount of money made by The X-Files.
