The creator behind the hit TV series "The Walking Dead" is suing the cable network AMC claiming that he was cheated out of profits.
Frank Darabont, who developed the TV show about a zombie apocalypse and was fired after the first season, filed the lawsuit on Tuesday in a New York State Supreme Court.
Darabont said that the way AMC is calculating the show's licensing fees is depriving him and other participants of tens of millions of dollars, the lawsuit stated.
