ABC sued over Lost

by on Aug.22, 2005, under Television

In what appears to be a standard event for any successful Hollywood franchise, ABC is being sued by Los Angeles writer Anthony Spinner because they misappropriated his concept for the show Lost. Spinner alleges that the original concept – and name – were developed by him in 1977 under contract to Sid and Marty Krofft (producers of many psychedelic TV shows in the 70s), and a contract with ABC promised him credits and compensation.
