'Sesame Street' Creators Are Suing Studio Behind Melissa McCarthy's Puppet Movie 'Happytime Murders

'Sesame Street' Creators Are Suing Studio Behind Melissa McCarthy's Puppet Movie 'Happytime Murders

Sesame Workshop, the parent company of the beloved children’s show Sesame Street, is suing STX Productions over its new Melissa McCarthy movie The Happytime Murders.

The upcoming movie is “a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.” (Watch the trailer now!)

The workshop is asking that the studio “simply drop the references to Sesame Street from The Happytime Murders marketing materials – a relatively small burden compared to the devastating and irreparable injury Defendants are causing.”

The poster for the movie has the tagline “No Sesame. All Street.”

The plaintiffs say that the “Defendants have refused, and the confusion and tarnishment are building, as evidenced in numerous social media postings.”

The Happytime Murders is directed by Brian Henson, the son of the late Jim Henson, who rose to fame developing characters for Sesame Street and later creating The Muppets.

Karen Gillan, Kathryn Newton, & Lilly Singh Discuss Issues Facing Women in Hollywood

Karen Gillan, Kathryn Newton, & Lilly Singh Discuss Issues Facing Women in Hollywood

Avengers: Infinity War‘s Karen Gillan, Big Little LiesKathryn Newton, and Fahrenheit 451‘s Lilly Singh grace the cover of the annual Women in Hollywood portfolio for Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine PorterEdit!

They were joined by Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller and Netflix’s VP of Original Documentary and Comedy Programming, Lisa Nishimura.

Here’s what the actresses had to share with the mag:

Karen on why she wanted to direct: “When I was growing up, I had a video camera and I would make horror movies with my parents or friends. I didn’t think of directing as a female job, which is ridiculous, but I hadn’t seen any examples. Then I started working in the industry and thought: ‘I should just do this.’ It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

Kathryn on the one woman who has most inspired her:Reese Witherspoon has made me a better actress. I remember the first table read of Big Little Lies; everyone was a big star and instead of leaving after, she ate lunch with me, and we talked about college and her daughter and Coachella.”

Lilly on being an Indian woman in the media: “As an Indian woman, my career allowed me to do something that most women in my family don’t get to do, which is move away from home. Now my mom doesn’t even care if I get married!”

Blac Chyna Reveals Why 'Rob & Chyna' Was Canceled

Blac Chyna Reveals Why 'Rob & Chyna' Was Canceled

Blac Chyna is spilling on why her reality show with ex Rob Kardashian was canceled.

In a new legal filing, the 30-year-old model claims the Kardashians originally kept her in the dark as to why Rob & Chyna was not renewed.

According to TMZ, Chyna believes that the show got canceled because the Kardashians made threats to E! that they would pull Keeping Up With The Kardashians if they continued to air Rob & Chyna.

The family allegedly “falsely claimed” to the network that she was being physically abusive toward Rob.

In the documents, Chyna also said season 1 of her show with Rob actually did better than KUWTK and they had even begun shooting for season 2.

She is seeking a paper trail that she believes will prove her accusations.

Meanwhile, the Kardashians previously said that the show was canceled because the ratings were not good and Chyna got a restraining order preventing Rob from coming near her.
