Mike Epps is executive producing a new show that honors social media influencers, but three producers are threatening to sue the comedian claiming he stole their idea.

According to TMZ, Calvin Valrie, LaMichael Finney, and Bervick J. Deculus fired off a cease and desist letter alleging that “Social Awards,” scheduled to première on BET in February, is too similar to the show they pitched to Epps’ cousin in February, hoping to get Epps on board.

The three producers never heard back from Epps and were blindsided a few weeks ago when BET announced it green-lit “Social Awards,” TMZ reports.

Via TMZ:

The producers tell us they’re still willing to work with Epps, but they have designs on selling it to FOX. The 3 guys have given Mike an ultimatum — capitulate by Friday, or else. It’s highly unlikely Mike would try and undo the BET deal.

One thought on “Mike Epps Accused Of Stealing Idea For BET’s ‘Social Awards’

    ”How blessed you are” !!! How do you bless yourself by watching over the ruthless things that are happening around where you are saved — It’s not just about praying, but treating others fairly in future to feel more comfortable without exclusion even those who look unloved, may perhaps be well proved! It can take time to grasp, but with a humble heart, it is just compassion for you to truly feel spared because happiness is likely to be uncovered as it is always everywhere through anyone; In reality, the rudimentary Sin is to insult someone else intentionally to satisfy personal moods, smugness or parameters. In the meantime, no society can go forward without challenge ! It is as with faith: ‘’Above and beyond what did you do in the name of the Holy-Creator to be sure that He is at your side?” Hum! In all consequence, try to work impartially to diverge any subterfuge, do not wait for a tragedy or state of emergency just to act as a human being to consider and shelter or hug the disinherited… Let the tears flow through an Ave-Maria or Amazing-Grace to praise the Messiah by treating others as well as possible, to feel good about yourself with the boundary or to serve humanity as the master has chosen us to fulfill his works.  Happy Holidays & Happy New Year 2018 Wholly to all readers who appreciate the untitled !!!     Versaint
