Comcast-owned pay TV giant Sky has paused its work with Noel Clarke on Season 4 of British police drama Bulletproof and any other projects.
“Sky stands against all forms of sexual harassment and bullying and takes any allegations of this nature extremely seriously,” a Sky representative said. “Effective immediately, we have halted Noel Clarke’s involvement in any future Sky productions.”
Bulletproof is produced by Vertigo Films.
“In light of the allegations of serious misconduct regarding Noel Clarke in The Guardian this evening, BAFTA has taken the decision to suspend his membership and the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award immediately and until further notice,” BAFTA said in a statement.
The newspaper said it had spoken to 20 women who had worked with Clarke and alleged he had committed acts of sexual harassment, unwanted touching, groping and unprofessional misconduct between 2004 and 2019. The suspension follows Clarke receiving the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema trophy from BAFTA during an awards show appearance in London on April 10.
