Roy Price Put on Leave of Absence at Amazon Studios

Hackett, a producer on an Amazon series, claims that Amazon Studios chief Roy Price propositioned her using crudely suggestive language. "We expect people to set high standards for themselves; we encourage people to raise any concerns and we make it a priority to investigate and address them".

Amazon released a mealy-mouthed statement that read in part, "W$3 e looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved".

The actress also said the executive she was referring to scrapped the project she was pursuing in the studio.

Amazon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. "I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change".

While Weinstein was sacked from his company Weinstein Co., Amazon has two series being produced by the company, however their future is not known.

Most damning for Amazon is the fact that Hatckett reported the incidents to Amazon.

Under Price, Amazon has been building up the video content available to Amazon Prime members, becoming a stronger competitor to Netflix and Hulu.

Despite traction gained with critics and awards voters, Amazon is in the process of pivoting away from niche, naturalistic scripted series such as "Transparent and toward broader, larger scale genre series favored by a large swathe of television viewers - and by Bezos".

As more and more women come forward with stories of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's decades-long sexual harassment, accusations against other powerful men in the industry are starting to surface.

Following a mandate by Bezos to focus resources on shows with greater hit potential, Amazon canceled dramas "Z: The Beginning of Everything" and "The Last Tycoon". The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Price is officially on a leave of absence, and that all projects with the Weinstein Co. are under review.
