20 October, 2017, 00:22 | Author: Courtney Perry
The head of Amazon's film and television arm, Roy Price, has resigned after being accused of sexually harassing a television producer. Following the recent sexual harassment allegation against Price, there is a consensus that, as Amazon officially moves to finding a replacement for Price, the new head of Amazon Studios would likely be a woman, with Powell again speculated about. In preparation, the company has been busy axing a series of pricey dramas already on its service, including The Last Tycoon and Z: The Beginning of Everything, the latter of which was canceled after a surprise season two renewal.
"I'm pleased Amazon is taking steps to address the issue", said Hackett, who is a producer on The Man In the High Castle (she is also the daughter of Phililp K. Dick, who wrote the 1962 novel the show is based on).
Hackett told THR that she had reported the incident to Amazon executives immediately. Hackett told the Reporter that Price relentlessly propositioned her, telling her, "You'll love my d-". Despite her expression of disinterest, Hackett says Price later said, "anal sex!" in her ear once they arrived at an Amazon party, where she had been speaking with other executives. Per Hackett, the incident took place July 10th, 2015, after she met Hackett for the first time at a dinner following a day promoting The Man In the High Castle at Comic-Con in San Diego. The tech news website Information reported in August that Amazon.com investigated an allegation that Price made unwanted sexual remarks to Hackett. A representative added: "We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with the Weinstein Co".
'I feel inspired by the other women who have been far braver than I am, who have come forward, ' Hackett said about her decision to speak.
According to T.H.R., when Big Little Lies was on the table, most bidders made straight-to-series offers; Price, on the other hand, insisted on a development deal instead, and allegedly asked a group of Amazon staffers at a holiday party if stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman would "show their tits" in the show. "Amazon won a dirty Oscar", she tweeted. The series would have included a Price-like character named Richard Forman, who has a younger girlfriend: a writer from NY named "Lita".
