Amazon Suspends Entertainment Chief Roy Price

Amazon Suspends Entertainment Chief Roy Price

"We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Company". Another powerful Hollywood executive is facing allegations of sexual harassment.

That article included few specifics about Ms. Hackett's claims, with Ms. Hackett providing a statement that she did not "wish to discuss the details of this troubling incident with Roy except to say Amazon investigated immediately and with an outside investigator".

Price has been at Amazon since 2004, working on their video services for over a decade. Multiple agents and producers who spoke to Variety in recent weeks speculated that such a departure may come soon.

Allegedly, after meeting Price for the first time during a day of press events for her Amazon show Man in the High Castle, Hackett shared a cab with him and another Amazon executive, Michael Paull, at which point, per THR, "Price repeatedly and insistently propositioned her". Bloom similarly dropped Weinstein as a client earlier this week as multiple women began to speak out claiming that Weinstein had harassed or raped them. She reported the behavior to Amazon executives and an outside investigator was brought in.

"I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing", McGowan tweeted. He said it hadn't been proven.

Those projects include a new series from "Mad Men" creator Matthew Wiener, titled "The Romanoffs".

Amazon's comedy series "Transparent" won a Golden Globe Award for best comedy or musical and a best actor Emmy for Jeffrey Tambor.

Following a mandate by Bezos to focus resources on shows with greater hit potential, Amazon canceled dramas "Z: The Beginning of Everything" and "The Last Tycoon". Albert Cheng, a former ABC executive who joined Amazon's video group two years ago, will be the interim head of the unit. In addition, she also worked with Kirkman in developing "Outcast", which airs across the Fox global channels group and on Cinemax in the U.S.
