LOS ANGELES (AP) — A producer of the "Gilmore Girls" is suing over plans to revive the series for a short run on the streaming service Netflix.

Producer Gavin Polone filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging he is owed nearly $200,000 for the upcoming four-episode run.

Polone was one of the producers on the original series, which aired on the WB and CW networks before ending its 153-episode run in 2007.

Netflix is reviving the series with several of the original actors, including Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel.

An after-hours message sent to Warner Bros. seeking comment was not immediately returned Monday.

Polone is suing on behalf of his production company, Hoffland/Polone.
