[EXCLUSIVE] Oprah Settles Lawsuit With Chicken Wing Reality Show


OWN’s new show, Wing Men

The company states they trademarked the name “WING-MEN” for their online show. However, they explain that last month OWN Network announced the premiere of a show focusing on a Chicken Wing business titled WINGMEN, which is about a “small-town food truck business selling a revolutionary twist on a culinary classic: stuffed chicken wings”.

The company sued, claiming OWN’s show was going to cause confusion in the marketplace and they demanded an injunction against her from using the same name for her show.
