I'll have to triple what Mark and Nick suggested... this is definitely a job for an entertainment attorney.

There's a reason that most high-powered Hollywood agents are also entertainment lawyers... the stuff they do is not only so complicated but also so different from almost every other kind of lawyerin' that it really takes someone who deals with all the minutiae of that every day to figure it out.

We were in discussions about a feature film once and I showed our contract (which was written by a very well-versed entertainment attorney) to our regular business lawyer, and I thought his head was going to implode. And otherwise he is very good at what he does. It's just such a very specific specialty, with a hundred things to take into account that the average Joe (or general practice attorney) would never even think of.
