Andrew Kreisberg fired from The CW's DC shows following sexual harassment investigation

Andrew Kreisberg fired from The CW's DC shows following sexual harassment investigation

The executive producer and co-creator of TV hits The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl has become the latest TV heavyweight fired following a sexual harassment allegation.

The DC Comics-inspired dramas Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow make up a large chunk of the youth-oriented CW network's programming.

Kreisberg had already been suspended from his job as an EP on all four Arrowverse shows after a total of 19 people came forward with reports detailing a history of specific and troubling behavior of an inappropriate and sexual nature around the workplace. Entertainment Weekly reports that Warner Bros. investigation into those claims is over and Kreisberg is out. "Television has terminated Andrew Kreisberg's employment, effective immediately", the company said in a statement to SYFY WIRE. "We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions", WBTV says in a statement.

Production on the shows has not been interrupted by this development as top producers including Berlanti have stepped in to ease the concerns of the cast and crew of the productions.

"Warner Bros. Television Group recently concluded its investigation into the allegations against Andrew Kreisberg".

After Andrew Kreisberg's suspension earlier this month following allegations of sexual harassment, Warner Bros. Numerous alleged victims are current or former staff from shows on which Kreisberg was executive producer. According to witnesses, Kreisberg frequently asked for massages, kissed women without consent, and regularly made sexualized comments about women.

Kreisberg was handpicked by Berlanti, the chief architect of CW's successful DC universe, to take over the growing DC universe. His credits include David E. Kelley's Boston Legal, The Simpsons and Hope & Faith. HBO dropped C.K. from its upcoming Night of Too Many Stars special and removed multiple comedy specials, as well as his short-lived 2006 comedy series Lucky Louie, from its on-demand platform. Kreisberg has denied the allegations.
