What does Roy Price’s suspension mean for Amazon’s future? – Los Angeles Times

As the head of Amazon’s entertainment studio since 2014, Roy Price was tasked with shaping the e-retailer into a major player in the film and TV world.

But his unpaid suspension this week after a television producer accused him of making unwanted sexual advances toward her has not only raised questions about his future in the industry, but how much damage it will do to the company’s entertainment ambitions.

Price’s leave from the company came just days after similar accusations led to the firing of prolific producer Harvey Weinstein from the eponymous production company he co-founded.

And it placed increased pressure on Amazon, which severed ties with Weinstein on Friday for twoupcoming TV projects produced by his former company. The allegations against Price have thrust Amazon further into the spotlight over its treatment of women.
