BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – A lawsuit over the hit podcast “S-Town” is headed to mediation. WIAT-TV reports that lawyers for the estate of the key character in “S-Town,” John B. McLemore, and attorneys for the producer have selected a mediator to work on a settlement. “S-Town” was released in 2017 and has been downloaded more than 92 million times. But McLemore’s estate sued in federal court in Alabama, where the story is based. They contend the producers, Serial Productions and This American Life, didn’t have a legal right to make money off McLemore’s story.
