Writer Claims ‘My Name Is Earl’|Is Based On His Screenplay

     LOS ANGELES (CN) – Mark Gable claims NBC based its show, “My Name Is Earl,” on his screenplay, “Karma.” Gable claims he sent his work in 1995 to several agents and production companies, some of which have relationships with one of the show’s producers.




     In his federal claim, Gable says the TV series, which began in 2005, is based on “the same, somewhat unusual literary theme as the screenplay: i.e. turning bad karma into good karma by righting past wrong/making amends.”
     He is represented by Girardi & Keese.
