Bill Nye Hits Disney With $37 Million Fraud Suit Over ‘Science Guy’ Profits

I think times must be rough for Nye who isn't really a scientist, it's a character he plays. 
He's Bill Nye looking for a settlement out of court guy.    

Deadline reports Bill Nye is suing the Walt Disney Company and a host of its subsidiaries today for more than $37 million, alleging he didn’t receive his fair share of the net profits generated by his long-running series Bill Nye the Science Guy.

“Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that as a direct and proximate result of the Defendants’ breach of fiduciary duty, Plaintiff has suffered damages in the amount of not less than Nine Million Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Five Hundred Sixty dollars (USD$9,350,565.00), the final amount to be proven at trial,” says the complaint, dropping some big bucks demands (read it here).

And then the big bucks get bigger, like three times bigger.

  1. Nye did his show for PBS and he gets royalties from Disney? He is an engineer who played a scientist on a TV show. He has one calculation that showed he was owed $9 million but states that isn't right as it should be $28 million.

    He did 100 half hour shows over 5 years. His role-playing has left him delusional.
