‘Walking Dead’ Creator Robert Kirkman & EPs Win $200M AMC Profits Suit

The latest Walking Dead spinoff The Ones Who Live's first season ends this weekend, but zombie apocalypse author Robert Kirkman, 

series executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, and others' profit participation lawsuit continues.

U.S. District Judge Fernando Aenlle-Rocha denied AMC's request to dismiss Kirkman, Hurd, David Alpert, Charles Eglee, and Glen Mazzara's mega-millions case yesterday, 

 focusing on the $200 million settlement AMC abruptly made in 2021 to end ex-TWD showrunner Frank Darabont and CAA's nearly 10-year lawsuit

The California-based company stated that it would be an illogical interpretation of the MFN (most favored nations) provisions and contrary to the reasonable expectations of the parties in entering into the agreements if the court allowed 

 Defendants to provide Darabont and CAA with increased contingent compensation and a greater share of future gross receipts for the series through a settlement agreement—at Plaintiffs' expense—without providing Plaintiffs the same.

On November 15, 2022, Kirkman, Hurd, and other TWD EPs sued AMC for $200 million for breach of contract after losing a prior suit. According to the LA Superior Court filing, plaintiffs are entitled to the same valuation for their MAGR interests,

 which collectively exceed Darabont's and CAA's. “As a result, Plaintiffs are entitled to a payment well over $200 million from AMC, to be proven at trial.”
