17Arrowverse executive producer Andrew Kreisberg was accused of harassment
In the past few weeks, Arrowverse executive producer and series co-creator Andrew Kreisberg has joined the growing list of powerful entertainment figures accused of misconduct. He was accused of harassment by 19 men and women.
Several of the accusers worked on The Flash, where he served as
showrunner. None of the accusers wanted to be named for fear of retaliation by the studio or others associated with the shows, but the accusers told frequently corroborating stories about Kreisberg's harassment.
One of the female accusers stated, “Going to HR never crossed my mind, because it seems like nothing’s been enforced." Many women on the set said he created a toxic work environment that felt unsafe.
A female producer in the production company said she brought her concerns about Kreisberg to a senior executive. After her complaint, she related, “There was zero response. Nothing happened. Nothing changed.”
Kreisberg has been suspended while an investigation is conducted into his behavior. After the news hit, Arrowverse stars Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, Caity Lotz, and Melissa Benoist have made statements of support for the men and women who are now speaking out.
