BBC has decided not to ‘progress any projects’ with the ‘Bulletproof’ actor after the British star was slapped with multiple damning allegations of sexual misconduct.
AceShowbiz -BBC bosses have shelved work on an adaptation of Alex Wheatle‘s book “Crongton Knights” after producer Noel Clarke was accused of sexual misconduct.
Clarke and his staffmembers at Unstoppable Film & Television picked up the rights to the young adult novel and were developing the project when the star was accused of inappropriate behaviour in a The Guardian expose.
Clarke, who has denied any wrongdoing, has lost a series of projects as a result of the drama.
“We are not progressing any projects with Noel Clarke at this time,” a BBC spokesman tells Deadline.
Sky bosses have also cancelled the fourth season of Clarke’s hit drama series “Bulletproof“.
ITV chiefs have additionally pulled a final episode of his drama “Viewpoint” following the allegations, insisting they felt it was “no longer appropriate” to air the show.
On top of that, he was suspended by BAFTA weeks after he received the organisation’s Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award at a ceremony on 10 April (21).
The BAFTA officials insisted they were not aware of the full extent of the sexual misconduct allegations levelled at the star when they picked him as the recipient of the special honor.
The embattled star recently announced he sought professional help and vowed to change for the better.
“Some of my actions have affected people in ways I did not intend or realise. To those individuals, I am deeply sorry,” he said while continuing to deny the allegations of inappropriate behaviour.
