A stuntwoman who was burned on the set of Syfy’s Face Off is suing the production companies and others for lost wages, medical expenses and damages. In the civil complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court (read it here), Tamiko Brownlee claims she was “severely burned over multiple parts of her body” when “a propane ‘popper’ and/or ‘woofer'” exploded on the set and she was “surrounded and consumed by a fireball.” Defendants include Syfy Media Productions, Mission Control Media, T-Minus Productions and HollywoodStuntCoordinator.com. The suit says Brownlee “in her participation of said production of Face Off did not know, was not advised, did not consent, assume and/or agree to participate in any way, manner and/or capacity in said television production with any defendant named herein where here person and/or body would be and/or run the risk of being burned.” The plaintiff is represented by attorney Vincent Vallin Bennett of Gordon, Edelstein, Krepack and Grant in LA.
