Emily Deschanel Previews Her 'Conniving' Turn on Animal Kingdom  — Plus, Her Thoughts on a Bones Movie
Make no Bones about it: Emily Deschanel’s Animal Kingdom character has as much in common with Temperance Brennan as a cobra does a butterfly. “Angela’s a recovering addict who just got out of prison; she’s kind of at rock bottom,” the actress tells TVLine. But since Angela’s an old friend of Smurf’s late daughter Julia, “she has a history with the whole Cody family, so she’s hoping to manipulate her way into their home and infiltrate their lives.”

Something tells us she’s gonna manage. Here, the actress not only previews her arc on

Stars Call On McDonald’s To Stop Animal Cruelty

Days before McDonald’s annual shareholder meeting on May 23, a cast of 25 celebrities is urging the company to address its animal cruelty problem in a

new TV ad produced by Mercy For Animals.

The cast includes Alison Pill, Emily Deschanel, Moby, Matt Lauria, Daniella Monet, Joanna Krupa, James Cromwell, Kimberly Elise, and many others.

“If McDonald’s customers knew the truth behind McNuggets, they’d be horrified,” said Moby. “We’re a nation of animal lovers — we must do better. Join me in telling McDonald’s to stop allowing this animal abuse.”

Over 120 food companies have committed to stronger animal welfare standards, including McDonald’s largest competitors, such as Burger King, Chipotle, Starbucks, Denny’s, and Subway – but McDonald’s hasn’t yet.

This isn’t the first time celebrities have called on McDonald’s to improve its animal welfare standards. Late last year, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Bell, Joaquin Phoenix, and

Judge Overturns $128 Million ‘Bones’ Arbitration Judgment, Rules in Favor of Fox

Judge Overturns $128 Million ‘Bones’ Arbitration Judgment, Rules in Favor of Fox
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has overturned $128 million in punitive damages that was awarded to “Bones” stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz and producers Kathy Reichs and Barry Josephson in arbitration, ruling in favor of studio 20th Century Fox Television in the profit participation case.

Judge Richard Rico issued a minute order Thursday denying the decision made by arbitrator Peter Lichtman back in February and striking punitive damages from Fox’s award to Deschanel, Boreanaz, Josephson and Reichs. This still leaves in place the remaining $50 million portion of the $178.7 million award Lichtman granted the “Bones” stars and producers in arbitration.

However, lawyers for Deschanel, Boreanaz and Reichs say they plan to appeal the ruling against punitive damages to a higher court.

“Today’s decision in no way impacts the arbitrator’s findings that our clients are owed more than $50 million for Fox’s fraudulent and deceitful accounting,” Daniel A.

‘Bones’ Stars & EPs Vow To Appeal Cleaving Of $179M Profit Award By Judge – Update

  • Deadline
Updated with Bones lawyer and Fox statements: In a stunning win for Fox, a California judge on Thursday tossed most of a $179 million judgment that Bones stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz and executive producers Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs were awarded by an arbitrator earlier this year.

Mere days after punting in a confirmation hearing on the profit participation matter, Judge Richard Rico today stripped all of the $128 million in punitive damages Fox was contesting off the award granted by former judge Peter Lichtman in late February.

“The motion to confirm the award is denied, the motion to correct the award is granted,” Rico wrote in his brief minute order Thursday (read it here). “Punitive damages shall be stricken from the award. The award will be corrected and confirmed as so modified.”

Uncontested by Fox, the $50 million in non-punitive damages that the actors and EPs received from Lichtman in his final award.

'Bones' $128M Punitive Damages Award Against Fox Reversed by Judge

Fox doesn't have to pay $128 million in punitive damages to the creators and stars of Bones, a California judge has ruled.

Earlier this year, arbitrator Peter Lichtman levied one of the largest damages awards in Hollywood history against Fox, finding executives lied, cheated and committed fraud at the expense of the show’s stars, Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz; executive producer Barry Josephson; and Kathy Reichs, who wrote the books upon which the series was based. They sued in 2015 claiming they were shortchanged on their share of the profits, and the fight was subsequently moved to arbitration ...

'Bones' Dispute Weighs Power of Judges and Arbitrators

Earlier this year, an arbitrator levied one of the largest damages awards in Hollywood history against Fox in a dispute with the stars and creators of Bones — and now a California judge is poised to make a landmark ruling.

Arbitrator Peter Lichtman concluded Fox executives lied, cheated and committed fraud at the expense of the show’s stars (Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz), executive producer Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs, who wrote the books upon which the series was based. He awarded $128 million in punitive damages on top of $32 million in compensatory damages, $10 million in ...

‘Bones’ Stars & EPs’ Stunning $128M Punitive Damages Award Against Fox Punted By Judge In Appeal Hearing

  • Deadline
Just over two months after Bones stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz and executive producers Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs were awarded $179 million in their long-standing profit participation fight with 21st Century Fox, a California judge today heard arguments on the arbitrator’s hefty decision.

The now Disney-owned Fox TV studio wasn’t happy with any of the huge sum in the self-dealing dispute. However, Fox isn’t contesting the non-punitive damages of $50,240,048 that arbitrator Peter Lichtman awarded the Bones actors and EPs. At issue specifically this morning was the $128 million in punitive damages he handed the plaintiffs as part of the final award.

With attorney Daniel Petrocelli of O’Melveny & Myers taking the lead for Fox’s appeal of the condemning arbitration decision, the Fox team is kicking back with the aggressive Pov that Lichtman overstepped the bounds of his brief in awarding “punitive damages in the face

Why ‘Bones’ Victory vs Fox Won’t Result in Copycat Lawsuits – or at Least, Not Winning Ones
Bones” stars and executive producers were awarded $179 million earlier this month in a profit participation lawsuit with Fox that ended up in arbitration — but don’t expect a sudden surge of copycat lawsuits, experts tell TheWrap. At least, not successful ones.

One prominent dealmaker told TheWrap that although this judgement — which ruled in favor of “Bones” stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, executive producer Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs, the forensic anthropologist whose books inspired the show — may lead other hit shows to hire someone to scrutinize how their studio shared profits, not everyone will have the right situation or the finances to take it to court.

“It’s the confluence of a successful show, where people are underpaid, where there are enough points that reside with one or two or three people such that it’s worth it to take on Fox,” the dealmaker, who requested anonymity due to

Here’s Why Fox Could Win ‘Bones’ Arbitration Appeal – And Why It Couldn’t

  • The Wrap
Fox is fighting a $179 million judgment against the company — one of the largest rulings of its kind in television history — over profit participation on the 2005-2017 series “Bones.” But it isn’t fighting the entire judgement.

In a ruling made public on Wednesday, arbitrator Peter Lichtman said Fox violated a profit participation agreement with stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, executive producer Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs, the forensic anthropologist whose books inspired the show, and accused three Fox executives of perjury.

In addition to a finding of actual damages, the arbitrator awarded more than $128 million in punitive damages, which he called “reasonable and necessary to punish Fox for its reprehensible conduct and deter it from future wrongful conduct.”

Fox seeks to void these punitive damages, and says the ruling is a “flagrant injustice, riddled with errors and gratuitous character attacks.”

Former Fox Boss Peter Liguori Scored Secret Sweetheart FX Deal Before Testifying in ‘Bones’ Case

  • The Wrap
The $179 million decision in the dispute between Fox and “Bones” stars and producers included a notable observation about former Fox executive Peter Liguori — he received a sweetheart deal from Fox months before he testified on the company’s behalf.

Liguori, who was president of entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company until his exit in 2009, quietly re-entered the company’s orbit in 2018 with a lucrative producing deal at FX, according to the ruling from arbitrator Peter Lichtman.

t seems coincidental that Mr. Liguori disappears for 9 years (from Fox’s radar) and then magically reappears with a First Look Agreement 7 months before he is to testify in these proceedings with a deal in hand that most producers in Hollywood have strived to have their entire entertainment career,” Lichtman wrote.

Bob Iger Backs Peter Rice & Dana Walden After Fox Execs Slammed In ‘Bones’ Arbitration Award

  • Deadline
A stunning and already contested $179 million arbitration award in the Bones profit participation lawsuit may ripped into Fox’s Peter Rice and Dana Walden today. But, the CEO who is about to formally become their new boss just did the Hollywood equivalent of Jay Z’s “Dirt off Your Shoulder.”

“Peter Rice and Dana Walden are highly respected leaders in this industry, and we have complete confidence in their character and integrity” said Disney chieftain Bob Iger Wednesday after the decision by Peter D. Lichtman became public. “Disney had no involvement in the arbitration, and we understand the decision is being challenged and will leave it to the courts to decide the matter,” the CEO added.

Even as Disney’s $71.3 billion purchase of the bulk of Fox moves into the final stretch, Rice and Walden have already been named to senior TV positions at the very soon-to-be greatly expanded House of Mouse.
