"Bennett also purportedly gave away partial ownership of the project.

Cathy De Buono and Sarah Blakeman sued Jill Bennett and Red String Productions, in Superior Court.
They claim that Bennett, De Buono's former girlfriend, and Red String reneged on an agreement to repay their investment in "Second Shot," an Internet series about a lesbian soccer star who returns to her home town to run a gay bar.
All three women invested in the project, as Red String Productions, with Blakeman the major investor, according to the complaint.
"Pursuant to the oral agreement entered into by De Buono, Blakeman and Bennett, each one of them owns an equal portion of 50 percent of the project (under Red String), while Blakeman alone owns the remaining 50 percent as the major investor on the project.
De Buono, Blakeman and Bennett agreed that Blakeman would be the first to be repaid, plus 20 percent.
There are no other owners of the project," the complaint states.
