Last July (2016), we reported that Tatyana Ali filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros and Telepictures, claiming that the entertainment companies stole her idea for the daytime talk show “The Real” which debuted in 2013. The series initially received a trial run on Fox owned markets in the summer of 2013, and was later green-lit for national syndication in the fall, officially premiering the following year, 2014.
The series was developed as a talk show to appeal to younger female viewers, initially co-hosted by Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry.
In Ms. Ali’s suit, the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” actress claimed that she came up with the concept for the show which she described as “a unique and innovative format, which featured an eclectic group of engaging female celebrity hosts, each aged within their 20’s and 30’s … designed to pique the interest of the younger side of the mid-life/mid-career female population and featured a variety of contemporary discussion topics in a relaxed and informal setting.”
