Don Johnson gets $19m in a lawsuit against the company that co-produced his series "Nash Bridges" for profits from the show.

In 2010, Rysher Productions was ordered to pay Johnson $23 million in profits for the show and interest.  Last October, the award was cut to $15 million on appeal. Rysher was also ordered to pay an additional $28.5 million in interest.

Johnson has now signed an acknowledgment of satisfaction of the judgment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor claimed that his 1995 deal with Rysher entitled him to half-ownership of Nash Bridges if it lasted 66 episodes. The show lasted 122 episodes.

Johnson sued for 50 percent of the show's money. At trial, his attorneys pointed to the profits the 1996-2001 drama made from re-reruns.
