Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra’s maiden American TV series “Quantico” is involved in a lawsuit filed against producer Mark Gordon amid claims that the idea for the ABC FBI drama was lifted from a 1999 documentary that aired on CNN.

Filmmakers Jamie Hellman, Barbara Leibovitz Hellman and business executive Paula Paizes, filed a 35 page complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court, which states that Gordon took the show’s premise from their documentary “Quantico: The Making Of An FBI Agent”, reported Deadline.

The complaint says Paizes and Gordon formed a business relationship in 2001 and she introduced him to the filmmakers.

In May 2002, Leibovitz and Hellman signed a deal with the Mark Gordon Company and “provided MGC with the film from the Documentary, information which was not included in the documentary, including all of their notes and transcripts related to the film.
