A&E Faces Lawsuits Over Reality Shows

From the Hollywood Reporter: Talent agency Venture IAB is suing A&E as well as several individuals associated with the reality show Pawn Stars, alleging that they interfered with its contract with the show's stars, inducing them to cancel its agreement with them and sign up with another talent agency. The suit comes a day after Storage Wars star David Hester filed suit against A&E claiming that he was dropped from the show after complaining that the show's producers "salted" storage lockers to make them more interesting for bidders. In his complaint, he alleges that the producers terminated his contract in retaliation for his comments about the way the show is constructed. More here from THR.
