I have to correct something: I was reading the actual lawsuit itself that is linked in the article, and it appears that this isn't a sweetheart-deal case, but simply a case where the plaintiffs believe Disney did not do its best to sell the series at maximum cost. The details are interesting.

This still does not alter my opinion of profit participation by talent, but I did have to point out that it does not involve vertical integration like I thought. The TV stations involved were owned by other media concerns.

One reason for my confusion is that, in the linked article, there is mention of the Improvement's team previous battle in terms of the sweetheart deal.
