I strongly recommend you listen to the Joe Frank program entitled No Show.
I think it will fill you in on this topic quite a bit.

To summarize, the screenplay for After Hours was not written by Joe Frank
but instead ripped off by Joseph Minion.  No Show happened around the time
when Joe Frank had planned to work on a radio program but instead got
wrapped up in the legal and personal issues surrounding the dispute over
After Hours.  So involved in fact that the only material that he had for the
show by the time he had to go on the air was the story of this whole affair.
So he sat down with the microphone and told the story.

Check it out.
