    'Hannah Montana' creators sue Disney for $5+ million

    While the billion-dollar franchise Disney Channel series is in the middle of taping it's last season the 'Hannah Montana' team is just getting started in court:

    Two of the creators of Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana" franchise have sued the network for more than $5 million in profits from the show.

    In a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, series co-creators Barry O'Brien and Richard Correll say they've been denied their fair share of the hugely-successful Miley Cyrus series.

    O'Brien and Correll created the show with Michael Poryes in 2005. They now say they're owed millions in pre-negotiated percentage-based bonuses based on their backend deals and WGA requirements for writers who receive "created by" credits. The duo claim Disney has denied repeated requests for payment and thwarted attempts to audit profits from the show.
    Poryes, the third "Hanna" creator, sued Disney on similar grounds in October 2008.

    I can't stand Hannah Montana, but I hope its creators win. Take that, Robert Iger! Take that, Rich Ross!

    You gotta give fair share where due, period. I'm sure they are owed something, but unfortunately probably won't ever work for Disney again...
