Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer and co-creator of “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” has been suspended by Warner Bros. TV Group over allegations of sexual harassment, the studio said in a statement Friday night.
“We have recently been made aware of allegations of misconduct against Andrew Kreisberg,” the WBTV statement reads. “We have suspended Mr. Kreisberg and are conducting an internal investigation. We take all allegations of misconduct extremely seriously, and are committed to creating a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”
Kreisberg is accused of sexual harassment and inappropriate physical contact with 15 women and four men over a number of years, many of whom worked on shows Kreisberg produced, according to Variety.
“We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners,” said Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions, which oversees Kreisberg’s shows. “We have been encouraging and fully cooperating with the investigation into this by Warner Bros. There is nothing more important to us than the safety and well-being of our cast, crew, writers, producers and any staff. We do not tolerate harassment and are committed to doing everything we can to make an environment that’s safe to work in and safe to speak up about if it isn’t.”
Kreisberg, who has denied the allegations, didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
