Katherine Heigl, Duane Reade end lawsuit over actress’ photo
Actress Katherine Heigl and Duane Reade have come to an agreement in a lawsuit accusing the New York pharmacy of improperly posting to its social media accounts a paparazzi photograph of her leaving one of its stores.
A lawyer for Heigl, who starred in the film “Knocked Up” and television show “Grey’s Anatomy,” confirmed Wednesday a deal was agreed with the Walgreen Co-owned chain to resolve the lawsuit, filed in April in New York federal court.
The terms are confidential, but a statement from Heigl’s lawyer Peter Haviland called it “mutually beneficial.”
As part of the deal, he said, Duane Reade will make a contribution to a foundation focused on animal welfare, established in 2008 after Heigl’s brother was killed in a car accident.
According to the lawsuit, Heigl was photographed in March near a Duane Reade store while she was in New York filming a pilot episode for a new television series.
Duane Reade posted the photo on its Twitter and Facebook accounts with captions advertising the store without her approval, the complaint said.
The 15-page lawsuit cited a tweet that Heigl claimed Duane Reade posted in March. “Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC’s favorite drugstore,” it said.
The lawsuit sought at least $6 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
Representatives for Walgreen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Heigl is set to return to television in November in a new NBC series, “State of Affairs,” in which she plays a CIA analyst who advises the president of the United States.

Katherine Heigl drama plus 2 more get NBC series orders
In the wake of its success with The Blacklist this season, NBC has given series orders to a trio of intrigue-heavy political-tinged dramas that bring Katherine Heigl, Anna Friel, and Hope Davis into prime-time.
First up is Allegiance, a show that will remind some of FX’s The Americans, except it’s set in present day. The show stars Scott Cohen (Necessary Roughness) and Davis (The Newsroom) as deactivated covert Russian spies living in America (full descriptions below).
Then there is State of Affairs, which returns former Grey’s Anatomy star Heigl to series TV. This one is about a CIA attaché who counsels the president on high-stakes incidents around the world. Affairs marks Heigl’s first regular prime-time gig since she exited Grey’s in 2010.
Next is Odyssey, an ambitious project that’s told in three disparate stories. From the logline: “This is the thrilling tale of families torn apart when a female Special Ops soldier in North Africa, a corporate lawyer, and a Wall Street activist each uncover the same conspiracy between a U.S. corporation, the government, and terrorism.” Odyssey stars Anna Friel and Jake Robinson. This order is a bit surprising because concepts this complex are considered tough for a network to market, but we heard NBC really loved this pilot.
NBC also picked up at one comedy to series, details on that show here. The pilot-to-series pickups are in preparation for NBC’s presentation to fall TV schedule presentation to advertisers next week. There will be more to come this week (including, yes, verdicts on existing bubble shows like Community).
Sorry for the long absence everyone. I will be working on catching up with the site.
