Woman sues Halle Berry to pitch TV show
Jo Anne Vandegriff has also mentioned Amanda Bynes, Disney and Armie Hammer in the lawsuit; says the suit is a ploy to get all of them in the same room to sell her script. Describes her script as ‘extraordinary’ and says will help promote peace
Los Angeles: There have been some really desperate attempts to break into Hollywood before, but this is legendary - a Los Angeles homeless woman has filed a lawsuit against Halle Berry, Amanda Bynes, Armie Hammer, and Disney... for the express purpose of pitching them a TV show.

Jo Anne Vandegriff - who describes herself as homeless - freely admits the suit is a ploy to get everyone in a room so she can sell her 2,000-page original Civil War romance mini-series, Heaven’s Angels. Vandegriff describes her script as ‘an extraordinary work in its length, complexity, and scope, though not yet a masterpiece work’.
Vandegriff is targeting Disney because she wants to open up the studio - which she claims produces lily-white content - to Black and Hispanic females. She doesn’t apologise for using the legal system to make a buck, because, as she says in the lawsuit, ‘a mini-series of this nature only comes along once every 20 to 30 years’.
So why sue Halle? Vandegriff wants her in the leading role. As for Amanda... it would be a great comeback for her. And Arnie... he could finally be a leading man. And Vandegriff promises her script will help stimulate the economy ... and promote “peace and harmony, health and happiness.”
