NBC, Dick Wolf In Lawsuit Over Meaning of 2004 Agreement

The WGA strike may have caused some additional fallout. Dick Wolf and NBC Universal are going to court over a 2004 agreement, which is now causing disagreement. Mr. Wolf claims that the pact provides him with a "kill fee", 2 years' worth of pay for a "Law & Order" series if it is cancelled. NBC, however, says it's a "pay or play" contract, requiring a particular commitment from the network (a one or two year pickup on a series). NBC is not seeking damages, but wants an interpretation from the court. Read more here or here.
