"X-Files" creator suing over contractual breach
X-Files creator Chris Carter is suing FOX claiming that he's been gypped out of payments that were owed to him. Apparently Carter enrolled in what's called a "profit guarantee" before the show's sixth and seventh seasons yet he still hasn't received payments regarding that or other syndication deals which he was involved in.
Now I'm no lawyer and half the legal jargon
listed in the article is gibberish to me, but you can get the full details of his lawsuit here. I will say though, it's
lousy when a great show like The X-Files (and especially it's creator) gets embroiled in a lawsuit that just
comes down to money. It's always about the bottom line. Now I could say something cheesy about "the truth"
and how "it's out there," but I won't do that.
