A top executive for Amazon’s entertainment division is departing just days after a fellow executive who hobnobs with Hollywood was fired for sexual harassment allegations.
Joe Lewis, head of Half Hour and Drama Series Development, is currently talking with an unidentified streaming company for potential employment, reportsDeadline. When including Roy Price, who served as vice president of Amazon studios before reports surfaced of him telling a female producer “you will love my dick,” this will be the third executive to leave the tech conglomerate, specifically its movie and show production arm.
Morgan Wandell, another top programming leader at Amazon, is reportedly leaving to join Apple’s original production operation.
Lewis’ replacement is Sharon Tal Yguado, who has only been at Amazon for several months, according to Deadline. She will be the superior executive for the entertainment development branch, and will be working with COO Albert Cheng, a former higher-up for ABC and Disney, who took over Price’s position and has dual roles.
Amazon did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation by time of publication.
