Washington DC (USA), 13 Oct 2017: Amazon has suspended Roy Price, the head of its entertainment studio, following allegations that he sexually harassed a producer in 2015.


Roy Price is going on a leave of absence, the company confirmed, amid details emerging of a 2015 incident involving Isa Hackett Dick, executive producer of Amazon’s The Man In The High Castle and upcoming Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams.



The suspension is effective immediately, according to an internal Amazon memo. Albert Cheng, a former ABC executive who joined Amazon’s video group two years ago, will be the interim head of the unit.


The move comes on the same day that actress Rose McGowan, who says producer Harvey Weinstein raped her, called out Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos via Twitter.


McGowan said she complained to Price about Weinstein, and after that, Amazon killed a project she was working on with Price’s team. “I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood,” she wrote.
