FX Ends Its Relationship With Louis CK

HBO removed all of Louis C.K.'s specials from its catalogue, and removed him from the line up of the "Night of Too Many Stars" on November 18.

In addition to canceling Louis C.K.'s overall deal with his company, Pig Newton, the companies said he will no longer serve as executive producer for any of the four shows they produce with him, including "Better Things", "Baskets", "One Mississippi" and "The Cops".

Later Friday, Adlon, the star of Better Things on FX, released a statement obtained by the Daily Beast. In 2010, she became a consulting producer and also starred in his FX series Louie, where he played a fictionalized version of himself. "But I'm sure it was before the last time he was on Parks and Rec".

The announcement came just hours after a report in the New York Times detailed allegations of sexual misconduct from five women against C.K.

'We are doing a full internal review regarding this situation and are taking additional steps to strengthen our processes and procedures while engaging with our staff to address any concerns about harassment or abuse of power'.

The comedian's upcoming movie, I Love You, Daddy, is also in peril as a result of the allegations. Prior to the scandalous revelations, FX had said they were open to making Louie season six, provided C.K. was. The women described themselves as being "paralyzed" during the incident and running out of the hotel room after C.K. ejaculated. That show is aired by FX. He encouraged Notaro to release a stand-up set about her cancer treatment as an album, which he made available on his website.

Another comedian, Rebecca Corry, also alleged to the Times that in 2005 the comedian "asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me". I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with who's professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects now in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You, Daddy.

Gender politics also became a focal point of his comedy. "We're the worst thing that ever happens to them".

The Good Place creator Michael Schur apologized for featuring C.K. on one of his previous sitcoms, Parks and Recreation.

I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want.

Adlon, who hasn't commented on the Times report, added on KCRW earlier this week: "He's a person of integrity and he takes care of people and he's an incredible collaborator and everybody that I know, knows that about him".
