The fallout from comedian Louis C.K.'s admission of sexual misconduct continues. According to The Hollywood Reporter, TBS has now pulled the plug on The Cops, an animated comedy from C.K. and comedy legend Albert Brooks.
The Turner-owned network halted production in November on the 10-episode first season in the wake of C.K. admitting that the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him in the New York Times were true. The cast, crew and animators were later released from their contracts.
The Cops was developed at FX where C.K. was under an overall development deal before moving to TBS, which ordered it to series in January 2017. It followed two L.A. cops who, despite their best efforts, regularly failed to protect and serve the public.
TBS pulling the plug on The Cops is just the latest consequence of the Times story. Late last year distribution company the Orchard canceled the release of C.K.'s movie I Love You, Daddy, Netflix canceled a planned stand-up special, and HBO dropped him from a benefit show and removed his stand-up special Oh My God and his sitcom Lucky Louie from its streaming and on-demand platforms. Meanwhile, FX cut ties with the comedian entirely, removing his critically acclaimed comedy Louie from its services and removing him as an executive producer on all the series he was involved in, including Baskets, Better Things and One Mississippi. Disney also redubbed his voice in Gravity Falls.
