Amazon Studios Chief Roy Price Resigns Following Sexual Harassment Allegations

Roy Price had been put on a leave of absence "effective immediately" on Thursday

Amazon Studios chief Roy Price has resigned after sexual harassment allegations surfaced, CNBC has confirmed.

Price was put on a leave of absence "effective immediately" on Thursday when reports emerged that he allegedly sexually harassed an Amazon TV producer.

"The Man in the High Castle" producer Isa Hackett said Price made lewd comments toward her and propositioned her while she was promoting the show in 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hackett's allegations follow multiple complaints of sexual harassment and assault lodged against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

In a statement last week, Amazon said it was reviewing options for projects it has with the Weinstein company.
