Mark Burnett Settles $70 Million Entertainment Lawsuit

Producer Mark Burnet, who is behind several popular television programs including Survivor and the Apprentice, recently settled an entertainment lawsuit brought by his former business partner. The $70 million settlement ended a nearly four year legal battle that had become an increasingly contentious.

As detailed by the Hollywood Reporter, Conrad Riggs claimed he was owed more than $70 million for his work with Burnett, which included pitching many of his successful shows to the networks. Riggs contends that their partnership agreement called for Burnett to pay him 10 percent of revenue from his company Mark Burnett Productions over the course of their nine-year relationship. Riggs contends that Burnett stopped making payments in 2007, when Riggs refused to sign a formal contract containing terms that deviated from what he expected.
