Big mistake NBC – Quincy never loses:
According to the lawsuit, Klugman claims he and his company, Sweater Productions, are entitled to 25% of all “net profits” from the show. But Klugman says the network has reported to him that as of the end of the fiscal year 2006, “Quincy M.E.” had accumulated over $66 million in net losses. Say what?
Klugman claims he tried to get NBC to turn over all its papers regarding the show, but was turned away with a letter that said they were “unable to comply with your request … because it is NBC Universal’s policy not to provide copies of talent contracts or other confidential documents.”
Klugman wants the money he is owed, plus legal fees. A rep for NBC had no comment.
