Starz, CEO Chris Albrecht Sued By Ex-SVP

The same day that the premium cabler revealed 3Q numbers below expectations, Starz has been hit with a wide-ranging and potentially explosive multi-claim lawsuit by its former SVP of Sales and Affiliate Marketing Keno V. Thomas. Pink slipped a year ago by Starz after a decade at the cable net, Thomas’ unspecified but sprawling damages and jury trial seeking wrongful termination and retaliation complaint alleges all sorts of shell games and scams by Starz.
