Arrested Development Sue Fox

Hip-hop group ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT are suing over the use of their name as the title of a new FOX TV series.

The MR WENDALL band have filed a trademark infringement suit against FOX, IMAGINE FILMS ENTERTAINMENT INC. and NEW WORLD COMMUNICATIONS OF ATLANTA INC. They allege that Fox's usage of the phrase will "dilute the meaning" of their name with fans.

Frontman TODD THOMAS says in a statement, "Fox has no more right to use 'Arrested Development' for its show than a band would have to name itself after one of Fox's sitcoms."

The series airs this Sunday (09NOV03) and stars ALLY McBEAL actress PORTIA DE ROSSI, JEFFREY TAMBOR and JASON BATEMAN.
