“Home of Playing cards” remains to be in limbo.
The present’s manufacturing firm, Media Rights Capital, informed crew members in an electronic mail Sunday that the present will stay on hiatus for the subsequent two weeks. It’s investigating allegations of sexual misconduct in opposition to Kevin Spacey, the star and an government producer of the Netflix hit.
“These final two months have examined and tried all of us in methods none of us may have foreseen,” wrote Pauline Micelli, MRC’s senior vp of enterprise and authorized affairs for tv. “The one factor now we have realized all through this course of is that this manufacturing is larger than only one particular person and we couldn’t be extra proud to be related to probably the most loyal and gifted manufacturing forged and crews on this enterprise.”
The e-mail was offered to CNNMoney by a spokesperson for the corporate.
Staffers will proceed to be paid throughout the hiatus, based on the e-mail. The present’s writers and a small group of workplace and accounting workers are working within the manufacturing workplace. Different forged and union members who aren’t actively working might be paid based on union tips.
Manufacturing on the sixth and ultimate season of “Home of Playing cards” was halted after Spacey was first accused of sexual misconduct in October. The actor, Anthony Rapp, told BuzzFeed that Spacey made an undesirable sexual advance towards him in 1986 when Rapp was 14.
CNNMoney later reported on allegations of sexual harassment and assault made by present and former “Home of Playing cards” workers in opposition to Spacey.
After that report was revealed, Netflix mentioned it could not be concerned with the present if Spacey had any half in its future. MRC suspended Spacey pending its investigation.
Sources near the manufacturing told CNNMoney earlier this month that it’s unlikely the present might be canceled, and that writers are discussing how one can rewrite the present with out its greatest star.
There’s loads at stake. Killing the present could wipe out more than 2,000 jobs and harm Baltimore, the place the present has been filmed for the previous 5 seasons.
MRC informed crew members that it’s going to replace them once more by December eight.
