ABC Pulls Promos Over Molestation Accusations Against Bryan Singer Deadline
In the wake of molestation allegations against director, writer and producer Bryan Singer, ABC has pulled some promos off the air. Deadline.com reports that the network is pulling some of its promos for the new drama series “Black Box."
The “X-Men” director is an executive producer on the straight-to-series drama, and ABC pulled promos that featured his name, the article reports. Singer is accused of molesting a minor 15 years ago.
"Black Box" stars Kelly Reilly as a neuroscientist who suffers from bipolar disorder. The official long trailer for the show, which is widely available online and can be seen below, references Singer indirectly, saying the new series is “from the executive producers of ‘House.’”
“Black Box” is set to premiere April 24.
"In addition to 'Black Box,' Singer also executive produces the upcoming CBS drama series 'Battle Creek,' from 'Breaking Bad' creator Vince Gilligan and 'House' creator David Shore," the report notes. "On that direct-to-series project he also directed the opening episode. Singer just completed work on the pilot, which has been getting good early response. CBS is yet to start airing promos for 'Battle Creek,' which is not slated to launch until fall."
Singer's next feature film, "X-Men: Days of Future Past," is due in theaters in five weeks.
