The Red Hot Chili Peppers are suing Showtime Networks over the new Californication TV show title. But it isn't just the title they discuss in their suit; apparently, the Chili Peppers have been cited and referenced a few times in the show.
Former X-Files star, David Duchovny, stars as a writer who decides to "sleep his way across the Southland," according to E! Online. I do not get Showtime and have not seen the show. I sometimes get a free weekend and I think there was one here recently, but I missed it somehow. It isn't hard to do when they show the commercial one time two weeks before it happens...
Still, Californication hasn't exactly set the entertainment world on fire; most of the reviews I've seen are lukewarm, at best.
Showtime spokespeople had not commented on the lawsuit.
