Salary demands hold up season 4 production.
Led by family patriarch Phil and his son Willie, the Robertsons have turned a business that began in a decrepit shed 25 years ago into the ï¿½Duck Commanderï¿½ outdoorsmen empire. The company, which manufactures duck calls and other hunting paraphernalia, serves as the driving force behind the television series.
Now, the family is hoping to turn their massive ratings success into a big payday. According to sources close to the negotiation, the Robertsons are asking for a new contract that would grant them in excess of $200,000 per episode, per person, the Hollywood Reporter reports.
