Gilmore Girls producer sues for fees on Netflix episodes


A producer of Gilmore Girls is suing over plans to revive the series for a short run on the streaming service Netflix.

Producer Gavin Polone filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros Television Production on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging he is owed nearly 200,000 US dollars (around £140,000) for the upcoming four-episode run.

He was one of the producers on the original series, which aired on the WB and CW networks before ending its 153-episode run in 2007.

Netflix is reviving the series with several of the original actors, including Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel.

An after-hours message sent to Warner Bros seeking comment was not immediately returned to the Associated Press.

He is suing on behalf of his production company, Hoffland/Polone.
