The Wrap:

“American Idol” creator Simon Fuller sued Fox Broadcasting Company and Fremantle on Wednesday for an executive producer credit and fees for the upcoming Fox show “X Factor.”

The lawsuit creates an exceedingly awkward situation both for Fox, which airs “Idol” and will debut “X Factor” in September, and Fremantle, which produces both shows…

… with the show just two months from airing, Fuller says, Fox and Fremantle have refused to grant him the executive producer credit or pay him a fee ”‘commensurate with his duties and stature in the entertainment industry.”
