Producer wants CAA and Ashton Kutcher to Pay Up for Failed DMV Show

Ashton Kutcher’s production company, Katalyst, and the Creative Artists Agency (“CAA”) are being sued for $12 million in damages by Emmy award winning producer, Hedda Muskat after her last brainchild, a reality show about the California DMV was scrapped. Muskat is claiming because her interests were pushed out of the show and CAA failed to adequately protect them, her cultivated relationship with the DMV was ruined thus causing them to back out of a prior agreement. Now, the failed project has cost Mustkat her professional reputation and hindered other opportunities.  After all, an inside look at the fast paced and entertaining world that is the DMV would naturally have been an instant hit and a dream addition to any producer’s resume if it had aired.
