Warner Bros. TV has fired Andrew Kreisberg, an executive producer of The CW’s “Supergirl,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Arrow” and showrunner of the first two.
Kreisberg’s firing comes three weeks after the studio suspended him following allegations of sexual harassment made by 19 women and men who work or have worked on those shows. They described multiple instances of Kreisberg inappropriately touching and kissing women and a “constant stream of sexualized comments about women’s appearances, their clothes, and their perceived desirability,” per the Variety story that broke the news of Kreisberg’s suspension.
“After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately,” the studio says in a statement. “[Executive producer] 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.”
