‘Six Million Dollar Man’ Lee Majors Sues Universal
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Actor Lee Majors, best known as television’s “Six Million Dollar Man,” is locked in a bionic legal battle with the producers of his 1970s series.
The 63-year-old actor, who starred as a physically enhanced test pilot on the ABC series while married to actress Farrah Fawcett, has sued Universal Television Group for breach of contract and fraud, claiming he was short-changed on profits from the show.
The suit seeks a full audit of Universal’s books and financial records relating to the show dating back to its inception and payment of unspecified sums found to be owed him.
A spokesman for the studio, a unit of Vivendi Universal, said the company never comments on pending litigation.
According to the suit, Universal agreed in 1975, after the show had been on the air for two years, to pay Majors 15 percent of net profits earned from the series and its post-network syndication.
The profit-sharing was supposed to commence from the first year of production, but Majors has never received any money from profit participation, the suit says.
The suit, filed Dec. 31 in Los Angeles Superior Court, disputes the accuracy of an accounting provided to Majors at his request last year. In particular, the suit says Universal miscalculated the amount of interest it was allowed to charge on certain production costs.
Majors starred in “The Six Million Dollar Man” as astronaut and test pilot Steve Austin, who was gravely injured in the crash of an experimental aircraft but was retrofitted with “bionic” prosthetics to replace the eye, arm and both legs he lost in the accident.
The high-tech enhancements leave him with superhuman speed, strength and vision, which Austin puts to good use as a covert agent for the fictional Office of Scientific Information (OSI), battling international villains, mad scientists and even alien monsters. The adventure series first appeared in the fall of 1973 as a made-for-TV movie, then returned as a series in January 1974, running on ABC until March 1978.
The popularity of the series sparked a wave of superhero TV shows in the 1970s and spawned the spin-off “The Bionic Woman,” starring Lindsay Wagner.
Universal’s cable network, USA Network, recently announced plans to develop a remake of “The Bionic Woman.”
