After 'Deadliest Catch' stars Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand bailed on their spin-off special, the Discovery Channel showed their claws by slapping them with a lawsuit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Discovery is suing the Hillstrand brothers for $3 million in damages after they quit a 'Deadliest Catch' one-time special, titled 'Hillstranded,' two weeks into production.

The complaint states: "The Hillstrand Defendants determined that they would reverse course, dishonor their promises, and refuse to render the services necessary to complete 'Hillstranded.'"
