Walking Dead Creator Robert Kirkman's Profit Lawsuit Against AMC Suffers Latest Blow

The Walking Dead profits lawsuit has suffered what an attorney called a "decisive blow" against claims AMC Networks cheated producers out of profits from the blockbuster zombie drama. In 2017, comic book creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman filed suit against AMC claiming breach of contract with EP Gale Ann Hurd, EP David Alpert, and former showrunner and EP Glen Mazzara, alleging AMC failed to honor its contractual obligations to the creative team. The complaint accused AMC Studios and AMC Network of "skimming" and self-dealing to misrepresent profits, thereby cheating the producers of their fair share.

How audiences feel about the new AMC series “61st Street,” an agonizing legal thriller concerning police brutality set on the South Side of Chicago, will depend on whether creator Peter Moffat sticks the landing. The often maligned area of America’s third largest city is marked by several defining features: grassy lots left empty for decades; the omnipresent rumble of the elevated train; densely populated street corners; malicious and roving police vehicles.

If only the series didn’t muddle those same people.
