Amazon has suspended the head of its entertainment studio, Roy Price, following allegations he sexually harassed a producer in 2015, media reports said. “Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately,” said Amazon spokesman Craig Berman. He didn’t provide an explanation, the Wall Street Journal reported. Isa Hackett, a producer on the show “The Man in the High Castle” and daughter of author Philip K. Dick, alleged that Price made inappropriate sexual comments to her. The incidents took place in a cab and at a company party in San Diego following an appearance at Comic-Con two years ago, the Hollywood Reporter said. Hackett went public with her allegations against Price in an article in the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.
