NEW: Burnett “is pro-Trump and has made clear to his teams that he will sue anyone who leaks" https://t.co/XoT6VecySi— Ben Smith (@BuzzFeedBen) October 9, 2016
Mark Burnett, evangelical Christian and Trump supporter, who produces The Apprentice, The Voice, Survivor, and Shark Tank, among other shows, is threatening to sue any former staffer of The Apprentice who leaks footage of Trump being a sleazebag. According to a couple individuals previously affiliated with The Apprentice, there is damaging b-roll of Trump, but a non-disclosure agreement in their contracts calls for a $5 million penalty for anyone who leaks.
I don't have the tapes. I've signed a Burnett contract & know leak fee is 5 mill. Hearing from producers/crew N word is the "much worse".— Chris Nee (@chrisdocnee) October 9, 2016
Mark Burnett was also the producer of Sarah Palin's Alaska and once spoke of how he hoped to do a reality show with Vladimir Putin.
