Wind Dancer Production Group, along with “Home Improvement” creators Matt Williams, Carmen Finestra and David McFadzean — as well as Tam O’Shanter Productions — filed a lawsuit against Disney in 2013, accusing the network of selling syndication rights of “Home Improvement” below the series’s market value, and improperly accounting their share of the net profits, of which they said they were entitled to receive anywhere from 75% to 100%.
The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
“Among other things, [Disney] have caused the series to be exploited in certain markets well below- market value, including selling the syndication rights in New York City (the largest television market in the United States) for no monetary consideration,” the creators and their lawyers wrote in the initial 2013 complaint.
Producers Matt Williams, Carmen Finestra, David McFadzean and their respective production companies first claimed in court in 2013 that Disney owed them money from syndication and other sources for the 1991-99 series that has made more than $1.5 billion for the company.

Previously, March 2017: Like a home improvement that you mistakenly thought was completed years ago, Disney saw some legal walls fall today after a California appeals court gave a Home Improvement profit-sharing lawsuit a brand new hammer.
“The trial court accordingly erred in granting summary adjudication in favor of Disney,” 2nd District Appeals Court Justice Laurie Zelon wrote with the agreement of two other judges, setting the stage for a new round of

An official synopsis reads: “Mark, a misanthropic 26-year-old gay man, had been living in his mother’s garage in Indiana and working on his sexually explicit — and Bdsm-themed — artwork. After moving to New York,
It focused on policeman Carl Winslow, his wife Harriette (a character from Perfect Strangers), their three children, her mother, and the irrepressible Steve Urkel. "Urkel" and his many zany catchphrases and geeky oddness became the focus of the series as time went on, allowing for more bizarre storylines like cloning and possessed puppets. Over the course of nine seasons, many of the plot points introduced were never touched on again, to varying
While it proved a popular series at the time, it butted up against series like Seinfeld and Friends, both about childless, introspective twenty and thirty-somethings living in New York and navigating interpersonal relationships far removed from the well-meaning hi-jinks of Home Improvement. Audience interests changing may also have had to do with Home Improvement's over-reliance on tired tropes, such as the battle of the sexes,

Xilla Valentine, who goes by BlogXilla on Twitter, asked the two about a hypothetical fork-in-the-road moment during the competitive team card game. The idea was to test their black cards, i.e. how knowledgeable the middle-aged white guys are about black culture.
Hanks evidently knows his stuff, and game Valentine a very confident — and we assume, satisfactory — answer.

That’s because “Abby’s,” which premieres Thursday, is the first multi-camera comedy to be shot entirely outdoors — and it’s been a learning process for everyone involved. Take the crickets, which have been much louder than expected. It’s driving the show’s sound engineers bonkers.
“Oh gosh, we have a lot of cricket issues,” creator and executive producer Josh Malmuth told Variety on set in October. “It’s a huge topic of conversation. A lot of the editing room is,

But exactly who is Leslie Bibb? She's an accomplished actor in her own right and has been performing for decades!
Born in Bismarck, Nd, and raised in Nelson County, Va, the 43-year-old model-turned-actress got her start in 1990 when, at just 16, she won a nationwide model search on The Oprah Winfrey Show. After scoring small parts in films like The Skulls and shows like Home Improvement and Just Shoot Me!, Bibb landed a starring role as preppy Brooke McQueen on the short-lived WB show Popular,
After “Roseanne” became a cultural lightning rod, after a slew of buzz built around “middle America” needing more right-leaning series, after Roseanne Barr got herself fired from her own show, and after that show kept chugging along with a name change and without its ex-eponymous star — because that’s how much broadcast needs voices like “The Conners” — here is “Last Man Standing”: a series revived from cancellation in part because of “Roseanne’s” surprising success, and starring a well-known conservative comedian who’s political punditry has lost him many former fans of “Home Improvement.”
Given America’s climate in general, as well as the specific events spurring heated debate on premiere night, “Last Man Standing’s” return was set up to be a triggering, evocative event; a rally for the right and another fire to extinguish for the left.
But there’s no fire here.
