Amazon has "postponed" its first ever European Prime Video autumn season showcase and party that was due to take place in London on Oct 19. 

The news comes less than a day the SVOD giant's global head of content was suspended following a sexual harassment claim from one of the company's producers. 

Price had been set to appear at the event at London's Picturehouse Central cinema. Amazon didn't give a reason for the event's postponement.

Price's suspension came on Thursday, just hours after Isa Hackett, a producer on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle and Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, detailed in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter her "shocking and surreal" experience with the programming chief in July 2015.
