Roy Price has resigned from Amazon Studios after an allegation of sexual harassment.
Price had already been placed on indefinite leave but had made no statement after he was accused of propositioning The Man in the High Castle (TMITHC) producer Isa Hackett.
Price, Amazon Studios’s head of video content, was also accused of ignoring warnings about the behaviour of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who is embroiled in various claims and allegations over sexual assault and rape.
Price launched Amazon’s production studio in 2010, and has built the business through series such as TMITHC and Transparent.
Albert Cheng will remain interim chief at Amazon Studios.
