CALIFORNIA (CNN) - Ashton Kutcher is suing California's Department of Motor Vehicles over an alleged reality show deal, according to a copy of the suit obtained by TMZ. The actor's TV production company, Katalyst Media, is reportedly asking for almost one-and-a-half million dollars in damages and costs.
TMZ reports Katalyst claims it reached a deal with the D-M-V in 2010 to produce a half-hour reality show about daily life inside the state agency. Katalyst said it had a written contract, but weeks after signing the agreement, the DMV reportedly backed out.
According to the suit, the DMV's Deputy Director said the agency no longer considered the series to be in its "best interests."
