Chris Hardwick's Talking Dead return leads to the departure of a female executive producer and several staffers
The Wrap reports that the unnamed "female executive producer and a 'handful' of the approximately 25 people who work on the talk show show left after Hardwick was reinstated last month." AMC declined to comment on the departures. Meanwhile, on Friday, Hardwick accuser and ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra tweeted that she stood by her allegations and explained why she didn't participate in the network investigation: "Hey dudes. Just a reminder: I 100% stand by every single word of my essay. I made sure it was unembellished, factual, and that I had evidence to back it up in order to protect myself in case of ACTUAL litigation (not a network investigation, where I’m not protected). That is all." ALSO: Nerdist restores Hardwick's name following an internal investigation.
