CITY ON A HILL (Showtime) - Co-creator Chuck MacLean had his responsibilities on the show "scaled back after last year becoming the subject of an internal investigation over alleged misconduct." "During 'City on a Hill,' I focused specifically on supporting anyone who was underrepresented or felt marginalized on set and in the writers' room. As a result, I was shocked and saddened when I heard that an anonymous individual had made these allegations," MacLean said in a statement to the publication. "I cooperated fully with CBS's investigation and I was pleased when it found that the overwhelming majority of this individual's claims were unfounded and that I was cleared to continue working on the show. I have always believed in treating all people equally and with respect, and I continue to do so." (Deadline.com)
