Oprah Winfrey sued for stealing ideas!

Oprah Winfrey is apparently being sued by a writer who is accusing her of stealing an idea about a faith-themed TV series.

Shannan Lynette Wynn is the name of the writer, and she says that she collaborated with a pastor to create TV drama Justice & Glory. They have offered the idea to Oprah and her production team, way back in 2014. Wynn and her co-writer received excellent feedback, but no contract was signed.

Two years later came Greenleaf (2016- ), from the creator Craig Wright, who has worked on all kinds of popular TV shows such as Lost  (2005-2006) and Six Feet Under (2003-2005).

Shannan Lynette Wynn claims that Greenleaf (2016- ) is a rip-off of her never-to-be-realized TV drama Justice & Glory.

This is not the first time that Oprah has been sued over idea stealing. In 2016, she was faced with a lawsuit over Lyanla: Fix My Life, a reality TV series.

We didn't get any feedback from the famous TV personality and actress, nor from her team either.
