Roy Price Put on Leave of Absence at Amazon Studios

(The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed Hackett told at least two people about the alleged incident in the immediate aftermath.) Hackett says she made clear to Price she was not interested and told him that she is lesbian with a wife and children.

Word of Price's exit comes only hours after "The Man in the High Castle" producer Isa Hackett detailed her harassment at the hands of the executive at Comic-Con 2015.

Hackett reported the incidents to studio executives who brought in investigators to look further into the allegations, The Hollywood Reported added.

Amazon has suspended top entertainment executive Roy Price.

"Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately", and Amazon spokesperson told Variety Thursday.

Once in the cab, Hackett says Price repeatedly and insistently propositioned her.

The allegations come after Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was sacked because of his sexual harassment of many actress and other women over the years.

Price declined to comment, according to the paper. Amazon, sources say, is on the hook for $40 million for the Russell drama and the Weiner show is already halfway through production.

Price joined Amazon in 2004, overseeing the launch of its digital video store and eventually its streaming service.

Amazon Studios has yet to respond to McGowan's claims. Although Amazon does not release viewership numbers, the company said in 2015 that "The Man in the High Castle" was its most-streamed show. The executive also faced pressure over a lack of hit Amazon original series. None of Amazon's originals has broken out like Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why and Orange Is the New Black have for rival Netflix.

Amazon Studios and Price received heat for their decision to cancel Good Girls Revolt a month after the female-skewing period drama that debuted to warm reviews.
