The co-creators and executive producers of Will and Grace have settled a lawsuit claiming they didn’t receive millions of dollars in revenue owed them from the hit show with TV network NBC.
David Kohan and Jason ‘Max’ Mutchnick sued NBC in December 2003 for $55 million. NBC denied their claims and countersued.
The terms of the settlement have not been released.
Kohan and Mutchnick’s attorney Ronald Nessim says: “We are very satisfied with the settlement.”
The agreement came a day after the foreman of the Los Angeles jury that heard the case was removed for failing to disclose he hosted a website which had been critical of NBC.
The jury had reached a verdict last Wednesday and Superior Court Judge Warren Ettinger had been due to unveil this verdict later this week.
However, as the case has now been settled Ettinger no longer has to decide whether to order new deliberations with a new juror.
