    Former 'Big Brother' Producer Sues Ex-Agent, UTA for $10M

    Published: August 04, 2011 @ 4:53 pm

    Former "Big Brother" executive producer Scott Einziger has filed a $10 million lawsuit against his former agent, Michael Camacho, and the United Talent Agency, claiming that Camacho steered Einziger toward inferior projects -- in part so that Camacho could seduce a married female producer.


    According to Einziger's suit -- which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday and obtained by TheWrap -- Camacho initially scored Einziger an executive-producer gig on "Big Brother" in 2008, with the intention of landing him a showrunner position at CBS.
    However, the suit says, Camacho later persuaded Einziger to abandon "Big Brother" and take a six-month trial run as a producer with the start-up company, Ellen Rakieten Entertainment. According to Einziger, Camacho later admitted he was "in love" with the company's principal, and hoped to lure her away from her family. (Camacho, the suit goes on to note, was married with a family too.)
    Once in place at Ellen Rakieten Entertainment, the suit says, Einziger was bombarded with phone calls from Camacho, asking if Rakieten had mentioned him.
    Moreover, the suit alleges, Rakieten was so inept at business that Einziger "was overwhelmingly devoted to running the operations of the company, with no opportunity to pursue showrunner opportunities as Camacho had promised."
    The end result, according to the suit, was "an uncomfortable, toxic working environment."

    Did Stern address this? Man, back in the day this would have been show material for a week, easy.

    The failing of former Stern employees has always been great, mean-spirited fun: Jackie, Grillo, KC, Stuttering John (ok, not exactly a "fail"...)

    that doesnt make any sense.

    if an agent says he should quit big brother.
    the correct response is. "no. and you are fired as my agent"

    Looks like he filed suit last year - I wonder if Einziger was able to extract any cash from them in a settlement.
