The Weinstein Company is disassociating itself from its embattled co-founder.
The production studio will no longer list Harvey Weinstein’s credit on various TV shows in the wake of the filmmaker being accused of making unwanted sexual advances toward multiple women over the course of the past three decades, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The company has reportedly contacted multiple different networks to approve removing Weinstein’s name. The removals will begin on Wednesday with an episode of “Project Runway,” with other shows including “Six” on the History Channel, the upcoming Paramount miniseries “Waco” and the upcoming Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore vehicle “The Romanoffs.”

MTV’s “Scream” will also remove Weinstein’s name for when its third season premieres.
The company — which was founded by Weinstein and his brother, Bob — is also exploring a name change amid the scandal, insiders told THR.
Hollywood stars accused of sexual harassment and assault
This comes several days after Weinstein, 65, was accused of sexually harassing multiple women, including actress Ashley Judd, in a bombshell New York Times report that was published last week.
Weinstein was fired by the board of directors of The Weinstein Company on Sunday.
The filmmaker issued an apology last week without specifically naming any of his accusers. His attorney said he plans to sue The New York Times for its false reporting.
