The Food Network recently fired the production company behind its popular Diners, Drive-ins and Dives show, which then boosted rumors that the show’s star, Guy Fieri, would be leaving the network. The production company which was fired – Page Television and Video Productions, Inc. – is also suing Food Network for not honoring the contract between the two.
It’s a good amount of drama, especially when you consider how powerful a star Fieri is for the network. However, Adweek is reporting that Fieri isn’t going anywhere:
Food Network would not comment on the specifics of any active litigation, but did release a statement saying that, ‘We look forward to continuing to work with Guy Fieri to produce future original episodes of his popular show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,’ said a spokeswoman in an emailed statement.
If you’re a fan of Fieri and his “I’m every guy” (which actually makes him no guy) image, then this is good news. If not, well, maybe you should stop watching TV altogether.
