In a shocking turn of events, it seems that not a single network wants anything to do with Alyssa Milano’s highly anticipated “Who’s the Boss” reboot.
The actress, best known for her role as Samantha Micelli in the classic 80s sitcom, had been hard at work developing a modern take on the beloved series, but it seems that all her efforts have gone to waste.
The reason? None other than tech mogul and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk.
According to sources close to the production, Elon Musk has filed a lawsuit against the actress and the network, claiming that the title of the show is a direct infringement on his intellectual property.
“Who’s the boss? That’s my catchphrase,” he stated in a tweet. “I won’t stand for this blatant theft of my ideas.”
The lawsuit has thrown a major wrench into the production of the show, with networks scrambling to distance themselves from the legal mess.
“No one wants to get involved in a lawsuit with Elon Musk,” said a network executive who wished to remain anonymous. “He has too much money and too many lawyers. It’s just not worth the risk.”
Alyssa Milano, on the other hand, is devastated. “I can’t believe this is happening,” she said in a statement. “Who’s the Boss was a huge part of my life, and I wanted to bring it back for a new generation to enjoy. But it seems that the world isn’t ready for a female boss, or maybe it’s just not ready for a boss who isn’t Elon Musk.”
The future of the show remains uncertain, but one thing is for sure: no network wants to cross Elon Musk. Who’s the boss indeed.
