    Oh wow what a mess. They're right in that article though: I don't know anyone who heard of the pilot they produced.

    To be fair Jordan's widow does not appear to be disputing the fact that Red Eagle did have the rights at some point nor that $600k was received for them. She was clearly aware that the Universal rights had elapsed or she wouldn't have been talking to Sony. The fact they've thrown together a joke of a pilot to protect their (claimed) rights by the expiry deadline may be upsetting to fans and Jordan's estate but it is not an unreasonable step to take given the potential commerciality of the franchsie (look at Game of Thrones). We have no way of knowing what the original contract said about input into or subsequent public review of output.
