Jeff Franklin, the creator and former showrunner of Netflix’s “Fuller House,” said in a lawsuit Tuesday that one of his replacements fabricated or twisted events to get him fired.“Despite hiring and supporting defendant Bryan Behar, a writer and co-executive producer on Fuller House, Behar was resentful of Franklin’s success,” reads the lawsuit.“Motivated by a secret hatred of Franklin and hoping to take his place someday as showrunner, Behar concocted a plan to compile unflattering and distasteful information about Franklin that was either fabricated or twisted versions of events,” the suit continued, “and presented it first to the media and then to Warner Brothers in an effort to get Franklin thrown off Fuller House.”Warner Horizon Television, which produces “Fuller House,” and Netflix both declined to comment.Also Read: 'Manifest' Renewed by NBC for Season 2Franklin, who also created predecessor series “Full House,” was fired as showrunner of “Fuller House” in February 2018, in response to complaints of unprofessional or verbally abusive behavior and inappropriate sexual comments in the show’s writers room. Franklin said in a statement at the time that he was “heartbroken” to be leaving the show. Behar was announced as co-showrunner alongside Steve Baldikoski 12 days later.In the lawsuit, Franklin accused Behar of “plotting a scheme” against him and “secretly keeping a self-described ‘little black book’ in which he would regularly write down anything Franklin said or did that could possibly be twisted into something negative and unprofessional to use against Franklin.”Franklin also said Behar “secretly photographed” him and unnamed female friends and colleagues, and took pictures of Franklin’s workplace computer screen, later using them “to paint Franklin in a negative light.”Behar, Franklin says in the lawsuit, also “took real encounters with Franklin and distorted them to create false narratives that painted Franklin as sexist and unprofessional.”Also Read: Aidy Bryant's 'Shrill' Renewed by Hulu for Season 2Franklin said also that Behar exhibited unprofessional behavior, which included being “habitually” late to work.Franklin is suing Behar and other unnamed individuals identified only as “DOES 1-50,” for intentional interference with prospective economic advantage. He is requesting a jury trial, and seeks unspecified punitive and compensatory damages, an award covering his legal fees, and any further damages the court may deem appropriate.Representatives for Behar and Baldikoski did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.Read original story ‘Fuller House’ Creator Jeff Franklin Accuses New Showrunner of ‘Plotting’ to Get Him Fired in Lawsuit At TheWrap
