"The National Geographic Society's film, which will air in the autumn, is allegedly crushing the plaintiff's documentary and its economic well-being."
Los Angeles, July 15 - Baywatch star David Hasselhoff is being sued by OWLS Media with a claim that he promised to film a documentary exclusively for them, but after completing work, he allegedly struck a similar deal with the National Geographic Society.

OWLS Media used the 61-year-old star for the documentary on the Berlin Wall because of his popularity in Germany and the way his song Looking for freedom became the anthem of the Wall, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Hasselhoff is a renowned musical artist and is particularly well-known...for his connection to the historic events related to the fall of the Berlin Wall, read official documents a copy of which RadarOnline.com has.

The company's grievance is that despite making an exclusive agreement with them, Hasselhoff filmed a superseding documentary almost identical in theme, scope and focus to the (OWLS Media's) documentary.

The National Geographic Society's film, which will air in the autumn, is allegedly crushing the plaintiff's documentary and its economic well-being.

As a result, the filmmaking company is seeking exemplary damages.
