Hayden Christensen Sues 'Royal Pains' Bosses for Allegedly Stealing His Idea
Hayden Christensen has filed a lawsuit against TV bosses at the USA Network alleging they stole his idea for a comedy series. The Canadian actor and his brother, Tove, claim they contacted the network in 2005 and pitched a proposal for a show called "Housecall", about a "concierge" doctor who makes home visits to rich and famous clients.
The siblings allege USA Network bosses took the idea and turned it into their own series, "Royal Pains", which is now in its second season. The pair filed legal papers at Manhattan Federal Court in New York City on Tuesday, July 6.
They claim an unnamed executive at USA told them that when they pitched their idea he was "aware of concierge doctors " and called their concept was "fascinating", according to the New York Post.
