      Warner Bros. Television has fired the showrunner of several Vancouver-shot TV series, according to reports.

      Andrew Kreisberg was the executive producer of DC Comics–based series Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.

      After nineteen women and men alleged sexual misconduct by Kreisberg, the studio suspended Kreisberg on November 10 as they launched an internal investigation. Many of the shows' stars took to social media to show their support for the alleged victims.

      Today (November 29), Warner Bros. Television Group announced that the 46-year-old Kreisberg was terminated from all of the shows, as well as the animated web series Vixen.

      Kreisberg previously wrote for or produced TV series such as Boston Legal, Eli Stone, The Vampire Diaries, Fringe, and the 87th annual Academy Awards in 2015.

      Matt Lauer

      Also today, NBC News announced that Matt Lauer was fired after several women claimed they had been sexually harassed by the 59-year-old Today show anchor.

      Lauer, who is one of the highest paid TV anchors in the U.S. industry, has been involved with the show since 1992.

      In response to Lauer's firing, U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter, stating "Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for 'inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.' But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!"
