Schneider Blasts Tv Bosses For Unpaid Royalties

THE DUKES OF HAZZARD star JOHN SCHNEIDER has blasted his former TV bosses for failing to pay him millions of dollars in royalties from the hit show.
Schneider and Tom Wopat played cousins Bo and Luke Duke in the 1970s and 80s TV series, which was a huge hit for network CBS.
Nearly 25 years after the show wrapped, Schneider claims CBS bosses have reaped millions from sales of videos, DVDs and merchandise, and paid the cast nothing.
He tells the New York Post, "They still sell Dukes merchandise at (discount retailer) Target, and none of us see a cent of that, of course. We were supposed to get a piece of it, of the tape and DVD sales. We made millions for people we never even met and will continue to into perpetuity. Would I like a piece of that for my kids after I'm gone? You bet. But that's the way it goes."
