Supergirl & Flash Showrunner Fired After Sexual-Harassment Claims

Warner Bros. Television has ended its relationship with Andrew Kreisberg following claims by multiple women that they had been sexually harassed by the showrunner of Supergirl and The Flash.

Kreisberg was suspended earlier this month after 15 women and four men who had worked with the producer accused him of engaging “in a pattern of alleged sexual harassment and inappropriate physical contact over a period of years.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Television began an international investigation into the allegations before deciding to terminate Kreisberg.

The prolific producer will no longer be involved with The CW’s Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, or the CW Seed’s animated Vixen. WBTV also ended its overall deal with Kreisberg.

“After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately,” WBTV said in a statement. “Greg Berlanti will assume additional responsibilities on both The Flash, where he will work closely with executive producer/co-showrunner Todd Helbing, and Supergirl, where he will work closely with executive producers/co-showrunners Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”

The allegations against Kreisberg arose amid growing accusations of misconduct against numerous men in the entertainment and news media, from high-powered film executive Harvey Weinstein to actor Kevin Spacey to DC Comics veteran Eddie Berganza.

After the claims about Kreisberg came to light, several Arrowverse stars, including Melissa Benoist, Emily Bett Rickards, Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin, released statements in support of those speaking out about sexual harassment.
