Greg Berlanti on former Arrowverse showrunner Andrew Kreisberg: “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused”
Berlanti, who’s been juggling 10 shows across his Berlanti Productions, says he first learned of the sexual harassment allegations against Kreisberg one week before they were published in Variety. Berlanti says he did know that Kreisberg had anger management issues, but not about the sexual harassment complaints. “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused,” Berlanti tells Variety. “But my overwhelming desire then and to this moment was how can I fix this, how can I help people that may have been hurt in any way. That is still the predominant feeling I have about all of it. So that supersedes all of the other feelings and emotions.”

Producer who co-created Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow has been suspended amid sexual harassment investigation
Andrew Kreisberg, who serves as an executive producer on all four shows, was suspended by Warner Bros. after what executive producer Greg Berlanti called “some deeply disturbing allegations” surfaced against him. According to Variety, which spoke to 19 sources, men and women “describe similar incidents of inappropriate touching and endemic sexual harassment; they often told the same stories and corroborated each other’s accounts.” The allegations include “asking for massages from uncomfortable female staff members, and kissing women without asking.” For his part, Kreisberg denies acting inappropriately, telling Variety: “I have made comments on women’s appearances and clothes in my capacity as an executive producer, but they were not sexualized. Like many people, I have given someone a non-sexual hug or kiss on the cheek.”
