Suit TV On Its Last Legs

Bombshell ABC Studios Memo Is Network Blueprint To Rip Off Foreign TV Series

EXCLUSIVE: I’ve obtained a shocking official ABC memo written by Howard Davine, the EVP of ABC Studios, to showrunners and executive producers with deals at the studio. Those who’ve seen it are shaking their heads in disbelief. “I’m stunned that they would have done this,” one insider tells me. “I can’t believe they actually put this down on paper.” That’s because the memo blesses anyone who brings foreign formats to ABC first so that the studio can steal the idea without paying the fat licensing fees that would accompany an up-and-up deal. Obviously, ABC doesn’t want to repeat what happened with a show like Ugly Betty, which is the American version of the Latin telenovela. This now proves they would rather just rip it off.

Go read the memo.

This is when the endgame begins: When Suits start stealing from each other.
