Bye Bye, Underwood: Hollywood Reels Under Onslaught of Sex Scandals

A string of sex scandals that rocked the US this year has taken its toll on the Dream Factory’s creations as Hollywood stars fall while movies and TV series get cancelled.

Netflix has already announced that the sixth season of House of Cards TV won’t be featuring the series’ villainous protagonist Frank Underwood played by Kevin Spacey who was recently accused of sexual harassment.

This development however has not been the only example of accusations of sexual misconduct effectively torpedoing the careers of movie stars and resulting in cancelled projects.

The scandal also caused TWC to suspend the release of The Current War, a biographical historical film starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon that was originally set to be released in November 2017. The studio also intends to remove Harvey Weinstein’s name from the credits of all of its upcoming movies and series.

The fallout of the scandal however was not limited to TWC and affected the studio’s partners as well.

In October Amazon Studios president Roy Price had to resign after sexual harassment allegations brought forward by Isa Hackett, the producer of The Man in the High Castle series.
