Andrew Kreisberg Fired From Supergirl and The Flash

Following having been initially suspended over alleged sexual harassment, producer Andrew Kreisberg has now been fired from all The CW shows which includes Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and the Vixen animated series.

"After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately," WB said in a statement. "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."

THR notes Greg Berlanti has taken over and is overseeing all the series productions.

"Warner Bros. Television Group recently concluded its investigation into the allegations against Andrew Kreisberg. We encouraged and supported this investigation, we believe and support the individuals who came forward, and we agree with the studio’s decision," Berlanti and Schechter said in a joint statement. "Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of all our colleagues — co-workers, crew and staff alike."

It's further said that Andrew Kreisberg was developing a new DC series, but now with his dismissal, the series is up in the air.

Andrew Kreisberg getting fired comes following NBC News having fired Matt Lauer earlier today for sexual harassment.
