‘SMILF’ creator Frankie Shaw investigated by ABC Studios over misconduct allegations

ABC Studios has concluded an investigation into “SMILF” creator and actress Frankie Shaw, according to Variety. 

The Hollywood Reporter and Variety report the network started an investigation into Shaw’s alleged misconduct following numerous complaints from the staff, including actress Samara Weaving. The actress, who plays Nelson Rose in the first and upcoming second season, complained over a couple of mishandled sex scenes. 

The investigation concluded that Shaw did nothing wrong, according to Variety, but Weaving was released from her contract as she requested. 

In a statement to USA TODAY, Shaw addressed the allegations through her lawyer, Andrew Brettler: “It pains me to learn that anyone felt uncomfortable on my set. I sincerely hope we can work together to resolve any and all issues, as I am committed to creating a workplace in which all people feel safe and heard.”
