Dualstar Entertainment Group, LLC was a privately held American limited liability company owned by Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, which produced movies, TV shows, magazines, video games, etc. Dualstar was based in Los Angeles, California.

In 2004, the company released New York Minute, the Olsen twins' first theatrical film since 1995's It Takes Two. The film was a box office bomb and suffered negative critical reception. Its failure led to the company struggling to keep up operations. In 2007, the company fell into dormancy.

Class Action Lawsuit[edit]

A class action lawsuit against DualStar alleges that the Entertainment Group failed to pay interns for menial tasks. The suit, brought forth by forty past and current interns, argues that the interns should have been paid minimum wage because they were doing similar jobs as their paid colleagues, without receiving academic or vocational credit [2]

DualStar responded, "As an initial matter, Dualstar is an organization that is committed to treating all individuals fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws. The allegations in the complaint filed against DualStar are groundless, and Dualstar will vigorously defend itself against plaintiff's claims in court, not before the media. Dualstar is confident that once the true facts of this case are revealed, the lawsuit will be dismissed in its entirety." [3]
