Don Johnson sues for 'Nash Bridges' Profit

By John Latchem | Posted: 18 Feb 2009

Don Johnson is suing three entertainment companies over profit from “Nash Bridges,” according to The Associated Press.

The lawsuit filed Feb. 16 in Los Angeles Superior Court claims Johnson owns half the copyright to “Nash Bridges,” the 1996-2001 CBS series in which he played the title character, a San Francisco detective. Johnson alleges he has not been paid his share of a $150 million syndication deal, and has been blocked from developing episodes into online videos.

The companies named in the suit include Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner’s 2929 Entertainment, the now defunct Rysher Entertainment, and Qualia Capital, which bought the Rysher catalog from 2929 in 2006, according to the lawsuit.

The second season of “Nash Bridges” hits DVD March 3 from Paramount Home Entertainment and CBS DVD.
