The Flash and Supergirl’s Andrew Kreisberg fired by WBTV
Following his suspension after multiple allegations of sexual harassment, Warner Bros. Television has announced that executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has been fired from the four hit superhero shows which he developed and continued to work on for The CW including Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
“After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately,” the studio said in a statement (via Variety). “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.”
“Warner Bros. Television Group recently concluded its investigation into the allegations against Andrew Kreisberg. We encouraged and supported this investigation, we believe and support the individuals who came forward, and we agree with the studio’s decision,” Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter said. “Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of all our colleagues — coworkers, crew and staff alike.”
Variety first reported the news on November 10 wherein the producer was suspended from the series following allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate physical contact from 15 women and four men on the staff of the various shows.
