The head executive of Amazon Studios, Roy Price, has been suspended following claims of sexual harassment. Isa Dick Hackett, the Hollywood producer working on the very popular series “The Man in the High Castle,” alleged that Price made unwanted sexual advances at her two years ago following San Diego’s Comic-Con.
The allegations surfaced publicly in August in an article published on the tech news website The Information. Although Hackett didn’t initially want to provide details of the encounter to the masses, she felt inspired by the many women who have been speaking out against Harvey Weinstein with their own personal stories of sexual assault and harassment.
Mr. Price has been with Amazon since 2004 and has held the executive position for three years. Albert Cheng, Amazon’s COO, is stepping in as interim head of the Studios during Mr. Price’s suspension.
