Arrowverse Producer Andrew Kreisberg Fired After Sexual Harassment Investigation

Supergirl producer Andrew Kreisberg has been fired after an investigation triggered by sexual harassment allegations.

Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of prominent DC superhero TV shows Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow has been fired by Warner Bros. TV Group after an investigation into multiple allegations of sexual harassment. The initial report from Variety which surfaced two weeks ago had 19 sources, 15 women and four men, who came forward to accuse Mr. Kreisberg of inappropriate conduct, alleging a “toxic” and “hostile” work environment that involved unwanted touching, kissing, and sexual comments. 

A statement released to Variety reads:

“After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately. Greg Berlanti will assume 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. We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”

The allegations detailed in the initial Variety report contained multiple allegations from both men and women alleging inappropriate behavior from Mr. Kreisberg towards staffers, and a fear to report him to Warner Bros. TV’s HR department out of fear of retaliation.

“Warner Bros. Television Group recently concluded its investigation into the allegations against Andrew Kreisberg,” added Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. “We encouraged and supported this investigation, we believe and support the individuals who came forward, and we agree with the studio’s decision. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of all our colleagues — coworkers, crew and staff alike.”
