McGuire Media, Foxtel and Jam TV Australia are being sued over reality TV show The Recruit.
According to an AAP report, Stephen Parsons claims he spent years developing the AFL talent quest show, but the idea was poached after he shared confidential information with representatives from the broadcast and production companies during meetings.
Documents have been filed in the Victorian Supreme Court.
The series returned with its second season on FOX8 last week as the top rated show on Pay TV with 118,000 viewers.
