Following last year’s news regarding Louis C.K.‘s sexual misconduct allegations, cable networks TBS and FX have severed all ties with the comedian. Production on C.K.’s new, 10-episode TBS animated comedy The Cops has been completely cancelled, and the 50-year-old will no longer handle executive production duties or receive financial compensation for Baskets, Better Things or One Mississippi. Along with co-creator Albert Brooks, the rest of the Cops staff have also been released from their contracts.
While Netflix previously planned to release two new Louis C.K. stand-up specials, the streaming giant has also ended their business relationship with him. “The allegations made by several women in The New York Times about Louis C.K.’s behavior are disturbing,” reads a November 2017 statement from a Netflix spokesperson. “Louis’s unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues has led us to decide not to produce a second stand up special, as had been planned.”
