Wil Wheaton says his web series “Titansgrave” has been making great money — he’s just not seeing enough it — so now he has filed a lawsuit to try and get what he believes he is owed.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wheaton claims he reached a deal in 2015 with Legendary Geek & Sundry to create, write, executive produce and provide on-camera hosting services for a new web series called, “Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana.”
As part of the deal, Wheaton claims he was to be paid $50,000 and then receive 50% of Legendary’s net profits from the show. Wheaton claims that the contract also provided for Legendary to consult with him before making any deals that involved the show.
Wheaton claims that Legendary breached the deal a number of ways. He claims Legendary licensed the show to Sinclair Broadcasting, Pluto TV, and Hulu … all without consulting him. He says he only learned of the deals because he happened to find the show on those platforms.
He acknowledges that those deals have brought in a lot of money but he also claims that Legendary has “consistently failed and refused to pay” Wheaton his 50% share of those profits.
Wheaton claims when he’s asked to see the accounting for the show, Legendary has “failed and refused to issue any accounting statements” refused to allow his accountants to conduct an audit.
In the end, Wheaton is suing for breach of contract and claims he is owed damages in excess of $100,000.
The Blast reached out to Geek & Sundry for comment but they have yet to respond.
