LeBron James sued for ripping off TV show, according to TMZ

LeBron James Is Being Sued for Stealing Barbershop Show Idea

When Alabama released its "Bama Cuts" program recently, National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James took issue with it, saying the idea was property of his "Uninterrupted" brand.

Two weeks ago, James' company sent a cease-and-desist letter to Alabama's athletic department, arguing that Alabama's "Shop Talk" web series featuring Nick Saban and former Crimson Tide players talking about football and life could have infringed on copyrights and intellectual property from James' "The Shop".

TMZ Sports reported Monday that Adventure Enterprises filed suit against James, claiming it originally proposed what would become James' UNINTERRUPTED show The Shop.


The company claims it had numerous talks about the idea with LeBron's company, UNINTERRUPTED, over a period of 2 years ... fleshing out the idea and figuring out a strategy for pitching it to various networks. The show aired as a webisode. At least that's what Adventure Enterprises is claiming.

The lawsuit acknowledges their previous confrontation with UNINTERRUPTED, as ESPN's source corroborated, which resulted in Adventure Enterprises receiving "an apology and assurances it was a one-time deal and wouldn't happen again", according to TMZ Sports.

So Adventure Enterprises is moving forward with a injunction against LeBron and his partner, Maverick Carter, which insists the team stop producing the show. They're also seeking what TMZ describes as "serious cash". TMZ reports Adventure Enterprises is also seeking monetary compensation but the exact total is unknown.
