A TV producer and creator who has a hand in a number of popular shows was fired amid allegations of sexual harassment.

“Less than three weeks after Andrew Kreisberg, co-creator/executive producer of the CW’s DC series ‘The Flash,’ ‘Supergirl,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Arrow,’ was suspended from his duties over allegations of sexual harassment, he has been fired by the studio, Warner Bros TV Group, following an investigation into the accusations,” Deadline reports.

In a statement, the company said: “After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately. We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”

Deadline notes: “Kreisberg has been one of the top lieutenants of Greg Berlanti, architect of the CW DC universe, whose company Berlanti Prods. produces all series. Kreisberg had been hands-on involved in ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl,’ serving as co-showrunner on both. Following his exit, Berlanti, co-creator/exec producer of the two series, will step in for him, assuming additional responsibilities on both ‘The Flash,’ where he will work closely with executive producer/co-showrunner Todd Helbing, and ‘Supergirl,’ where he will work closely with executive producers/co-showrunners Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller.”
