All Def Comedy will continue in its quest for Season 2 renewal, but EP Russell Simmons has been cancelled from the series, in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
A HBO spokesperson said:
“HBO will be airing All Def Comedy as planned. However, Russell Simmons will not appear in the new series and we will be removing his name from the show moving forward. The series is a platform for promising and upcoming comedians and we do not want to deprive them of an opportunity to showcase their talents to a national audience. We have no other projects with Russell Simmons.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of All Def Comedy Season 2…
