‘Walking Dead’ Lawsuit: Judge Sets Summary Judgment Hearing Date, Disclosure Terms


After months of documents being kept under seal, the public will be able to see a little additional information about AMC Network’s agreements with CAA and client Frank Darabont involving mega hit The Walking Dead — which they are contesting at the New York State Supreme Court.

Over three years after The Shawshank Redemption director and his agency sued AMC over multi-million dollar profit participation disputes, Justice Eileen Bransten today provided line-by-line instructions about the information to disclose, and keep private, in exhibits before her. She also set June 9 for a hearing on both sides motions for a summary judgment, which could kick the case into high gear. Filings, potentially including unredacted material, are due by May 23.
