David O. Russell's $160M TWC-Produced Drama Dead at Amazon
Following rape and sexual harassment allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein and the suspension of Amazon Studios head Roy Price after an allegation of harassment, Amazon has scrapped its pricey David O. Russell drama and taken over Matt Weiner's The Romanoffs.
Both shows were being produced by The Weinstein Co., and the retail giant/streaming outlet has now completely cut ties with the company.
The news comes days after Amazon Studios said it was "reviewing" its options on The Romanoffs — the eight-episode anthology from Mad Men creator Weiner — as well as the untitled Russell drama that was to star Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.
