(LOS ANGELES) — Ashton Kutcher’s production company has settled a lawsuit it brought against the California Department of Motor Vehicles last June, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Katalyst Media had claimed the California DMV backed out of an agreement to develop a reality show that would have starred its employees and would have aired on TruTV. The lawsuit stated the deputy director of the DMV informed producers that the DMV decided the show would not be in its best interests.
Katalyst claimed it was owed at least $1.44 million in damages. The two sides have reached an unspecified settlement.
Katalyst has produced such reality shows as Punk’d and Beauty and the Geek.
