Glee - Glee Producer Sues Co-creator Over Compensation Claims

A producer on Glee who helped sell the original idea to creator Ryan Murphy is suing co-executive producer Ian Brennan over allegations he failed to honour a compensation agreement in the early days of the show.
Producer Michael Novick approached Murphy with his pal Brennan's concept of a movie about a high school choir. Murphy loved the idea and pitched it to Fox as a TV show.
Novick reportedly wanted more money than the amount offered from network bosses, but was allegedly persuaded by Brennan to accept lesser credit and cash in exchange for 15 per cent of any later compensation Brennan - who co-executive produces and writes the huge hit - would receive.
However, the promised deal has not worked out and Novick has now filed suit against Brennan. He is seeking unspecified damages.
