Amazon Studios boss Roy Price placed on leave after sexual harassment allegations

Written by  Jess Joho

As more and more women come forward with stories of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's decades-long sexual harassment, accusations against other powerful men in the industry are starting to surface.

Back in August, Man in the High Castle producer Isa Hackett detailed an incident with Roy Price, the head of Amazon Studios, which occurred in 2015, but declined to elaborate, telling The Information, "I do not wish to discuss the details of this troubling incident with Roy except to say Amazon investigated immediately and with an outside investigator.

"

In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, Hackett has now gone on the record with The Hollywood Reporter to reveal that Price allegedly made inappropriate remarks to her during San Diego Comic-Con. Variety then reported that Amazon has put Price on a leave of absence "effective immediately." 

Allegedly, after meeting Price for the first time during a day of press events for her Amazon show Man in the High Castle, Hackett shared a cab with him and another Amazon executive, Michael Paull, at which point, per THR, "Price repeatedly and insistently propositioned her."  

"You will love my dick,” Price allegedly said, according to Hackett's account, despite Hackett reiterating that she wasn't interested, telling Price she is a lesbian with a wife and children.
