'Peaky Blinders' to Remove Weinstein Company From Credits

Written by 

Peaky Blinders is making a change following the allegations of sexual harassment and rape made against Harvey Weinstein.

The Netflix series is removing a production card for The Weinstein Company in the wake of the scandal facing the company's now-former co-chairman, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Netflix, which distributes the show stateside, and Endemol Shine International, which handles distribution outside of the U.S., declined to comment.

While not credited as a producer on the drama, TWC brokered the deal for Netflix to carry the series in the U.S. which is why a presentation card for TWC appeared on the series. However, Weinstein's name did not appear and that card will be removed from the upcoming fourth season of the series as well as the previous three seasons.

The slew of accusations against Weinstein have left several of the company's future TV projects in flux, including two expensive original dramas at Amazon. One is an anthology series from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner and the other is a drama from Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell starring Robert De Niro in his first regular TV role.

Following the scandal, Apple also scrapped a 10-part TV series about Elvis Presley that TWC was set to produce.
