A showrunner on a CBS series has been let go for using inappropriate language in the workplace, reports TVLine.
The person fired, says TVLine, is Bob Kushell, the “co-showrunner of CBS’ Nina Dobrev -led midseason comedy ‘Fam.’”
The story adds, “‘Fam’ creator/co-showrunner Corinne Kingsbury will now serve as the sitcom’s sole showrunner.”
Notes The Hollywood Reporter, in its story about Kushell, his “firing comes in the wake of several high-profile cases at CBS involving workplace misconduct, headed by the ouster of former CEO Leslie Moonves in September.
“CBS Studios dropped former ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ showrunner Brad Kern from an overall deal, and ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ dismissed showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts amid allegations of abusive behavior, along with budget overruns that happened on their watch. Vinnie Favale, a CBS Studios executive, was placed on leave in October after allegations of misconduct.
