Court Rejects Tatyana Ali’s Legal Battle Against ‘The Real’

Published: Tuesday 28th Feb 2017 by David

A court has pulled the plug on Tatyana Ali‘s quest to sue the thriving series ‘The Real.’

Full story below…

In 2016, Ali filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros after she claimed it stole a concept she presented to them to create ‘The Real.’

Her claim is that she pitched a “a unique and innovative format, which featured an eclectic group of engaging female celebrity hosts, each aged within their 20’s and 30’s … designed to pique the interest of the younger side of the mid-life/mid-career female population and featured a variety of contemporary discussion topics in a relaxed and informal setting” to Warner.

She was then told that they had passed on the idea and later discovered that they were to create ‘Real.’

Why her suit was tossed out?

‘Shadow and Act’ reports:

The Los Angeles Superior Court dismissed Ms. Ali’s lawsuit, ruling that the trade secret laws on which she based her claim do not protect ideas (unlike actual trade secrets, which this wasn’t considered), and that she willingly shared her talk show idea with the parties named in her suit.

    I’m not that shocked when panel talk shows are a dime a dozen these days. Saying younger and multi ethnic doesn’t make it that much different.

    Love Tati but her concept is still based off “The View” so it still lacked originality.

    Idk but I would like to see a show like this but with both men and women.

    She actually went on THE REAL as a guest and was smiling all in they face then turn around a sue them.

    She could have saved her time and read up on the law instead of sueing. You can’t protect an “idea”

    So they basically split hairs to screw her over. Typical.
