Amazon has suspended top entertainment executive Roy Price.

"Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately", a spokesperson told TheWrap.

The news comes as Amazon is now reviewing two expensive dramas the streamer has in the works from The Weinstein Co.in the wake of rape and sexual harassment allegations against former co-founder Harvey Weinstein.

Houston won 5 of 7 games vs. New York Yankees in 2017
With the Astros bullpen a plus unit and the defense being strong at almost every position, it's hard to find a flaw with Houston. Houston will also run out Justin Verlander (15-8, 3.36), Brad Peacock (13-2, 3.00) and Charlie Morton (14-7, 3.62).

The actress also said the executive she was referring to scrapped the project she was pursuing in the studio.

Under Price, Amazon has been building up the video content available to Amazon Prime members, becoming a stronger competitor to Netflix and Hulu. Multiple agents and producers who spoke to Variety in recent weeks speculated that such a departure may come soon.

That speculation has driven by concerns over possible sexual harassment and a dramatic shift in Amazon's approach to original programming - one that was mandated by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and which rejects the strategy employed for years by Price.

Hours after the Hollywood Reporter published a story about Amazon Studios' Roy Price allegedly sexually harassing a producer of one of the streamer's shows, Price has been put on leave.

Hackett is the daughter of the late writer Philip K. Dick; The Man in the High Castle is based on his novel of the same name. Also, attorney Lisa Bloom, who recently dropped Harvey Weinstein as a client, has quit representing Price as well, according to Deadline, but she said she made the decision before Hackett's account became public. As she talked with other executives, she says that Price stepped close to her and loudly said, "Anal sex!" in her ear. He said it hadn't been proven. "I said I was the proof", McGowan wrote.

"I didn't want to distract or deflate the energies of all the people who are so invested in these shows, and all of that positivity", she told THR. She added that the executive had then killed a project she was developing at the studio.
