Don Johnson, police detective "Nash Bridges" will receive $23.2 million in profits from the show. The Los Angeles jury found that the actor was owed that amount from Rysher Entertainment, the production company.

Johnson sued Rysher saying he was entitled to half the profits from the show because he owned half of its copyright. The company contended during the trial that the show has yet to be profitable because it cost so much to make, and Johnson, who was an executive producer, already received tens of millions of dollars during the filming.

Johnson’s ownership of half of the series was recognized and found that the actor should continue to receive half of the profits from syndication in the future.
