After Life: Producer Charlie Hanson Removed from Netflix Series after Sexual Misconduct 

Producer Charlie Hanson Removed from Netflix Series ‘After Life’ after Sexual Misconduct

The story notes that Hanson, 68, was asked to leave set of the Ricky Gervais show after eleven woman made claims against him.

“One woman alleges an incident in 2008 where Hanson had sex with her without her consent in a house she did not recognize,” tweeted reporter Sophie Wilkinson, who co-authored the Times report with Lucy Bannerman. “Another woman alleges an incident in 2015 where Hanson ‘persisted in sexual contact’ despite her state of semi-consciousness.”

Wilkinson noted that two of the 11 victims contributed to anonymous email sent to BAFTA and Netflix earlier this week, alleging: “At times he will promise them a starry career under his wing, and then exploits that trust in creepy and illegal ways.” The Times report notes that Hanson has had his BAFTA membership revoked.

Hanson, whose producing credits include Derek, Extra’s, In the Long Run and Life’s Too Short, denies the allegations.

His solicitor said in a statement: “Our client is shocked and appalled by these historic and false allegations of improper conduct towards women.” Hanson will cooperate with any formal investigation.
