Michael Irvin sued over TV show

DALLAS (AP) - A lawsuit three men have filed against former Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin contends he stole the concept for his reality TV show from them.

The men claim Irvin's "4th and Long" is actually their concept called "Guts and Glory."

Irvin's attorney, Larry Friedman, called the lawsuit bogus and said the men were "looking for something for nothing." He said Irvin had the idea years ago.

Friedman said Irvin met with the men a year ago in Dallas and said they "impersonated producers."

Mark Taylor, an attorney for the three men, told The Dallas Morning News that there was no indication that Irvin was working on an idea similar to theirs'.

The lawsuit seek unspecified damages.
