Bosses at Ashton Kutcher 's company Katalyst Media are facing a $2 million (£1.3 million) lawsuit over a reality show based on the California Department of Motor Vehicles (Dmv). Producers at Big Cheese Media are claiming Hedda Muskat came up with the idea for the series based on her daughter's experiences at the Dmv. Muskat took the idea to bosses at the Creative Artists Agency, who are also named in the suit, and they advised her to take the idea to Katalyst Media for co-production. Muskat alleges the pitch meeting with Kutcher's ideas company was set up while she was out of town, and she was eventually phased out of the project. According to the lawsuit, the reality series subsequently fell through after bosses at the Dmv pulled their consent because Muskat was not involved and they were wary of Katalyst Media's hidden-camera prank show Punk'd. In May (13), Kutcher and his production partner Jason Goldberg settled a $1.4 million (£930,330) lawsuit with officials at the Dmv over the scrapped show, which was set to feature real-life department staff. The show had been picked up by executives at America's TruTv channel, according to papers filed in a Los Angeles court last year (12). Contactmusic
