Sunderland Fires Production Company

| June 14, 2010 | 1 Comment

After feeling the heat from the media, it appears that Laurence Sunderland has “cut ties” with the reality show producer who intended to produce at least two shows based on the Sunderlands.

According to a post on the LA Times, Sunderland and the producer parted ways because he did not like the direction the show was headed.

As we said several days ago, this saga did not smell right. Certainly Abby Sunderland was in peril, but the behavior of the parents was suspicious. Who creates a site to save a boat when your daughter nearly died at sea?  Reports indicate that the Sunderlands are essentially broke and it appears that Abby was used by her parents to be the goose that laid the golden egg.

Now in an attempt to salvage what it left of their reputation and to allay some of the criticism rightfully leveled at them, they are backtracking.
