HBO will not be moving forward with its planto make a miniseries based off of the 2016 election after Mark Halperin, co-author of the still-unreleased sequel to “Game Change,” was suspended from NBC on Thursday following sexual harassment allegations stemming from his time at ABC. Five women initially came forward to CNN to describe Halperin’s inappropriate conduct, and more (including Emily Miller) have emerged since.
Halperin admitted that his behavior was inappropriate, and that he had sexually pursued women that he worked with.
In a statement released by HBO, the network said that they had “no tolerance for sexual harassment within the company.”
