Universal Studios International Sues Romanian National Broadcaster For $11M

SRTv had signed a five year, nine month contract with Universal Studios International to broadcast films such as "8 Mile", "About a Boy" and "Do the Right Thing," and TV series such as "30 Rock" and "Battlestar Galactica" in Romania and the Republic of Moldova.

TVR is accused of breach of contract. When Universal complained earlier this year, TVR paid a small amount of the fees, but "not nearly enough," according to studio officials.

The suit was filed Tuesday in the Los Angeles Supreme Court by Linda Burrow, David Zaft and Lennette Lee, on behalf of Universal Studios International, based in the Netherlands, through law firm Caldwell Leslie & Proctor.
