Don Johnson has sued a trio of entertainment companies, claiming he is owed millions in profits from the TV series “Nash Bridges.”
Filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the suit claims Johnson owns half of the copyright to “Nash Bridges” and has not been paid his share of a $150 million syndication deal.
Johnson also claims he has been blocked from developing the six seasons worth of episodes into online videos.
He is suing the now-defunct Rysher Entertainment, 2929 Entertainment — which was founded by Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner — and Qualia Capital. Qualia Capital bought Rysher’s catalog from 2929 in 2006, the lawsuit states.
A phone message left for an executive at Qualia Capital was not immediately returned.
