Default Patricia Heaton's husband, was investigated for improper conduct

...after hugging a writer

https://deadline.com/2019/11/carols-...on-1202779949/

When Carol's Second Act was picked up to series earlier this year, the cast and crew went out to dinner. Afterwards, David Hunt, who's been married to Heaton since 1990, initiated a hug on a junior female writer that made her feel uncomfortable, according to Deadline. The writer reported it to to a senior female writer, who alerted the series creators, executive producers and showrunners Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins. They reported it to the production company and CBS TV Studios, which responded with an HR investigation. Following the investigation, Hunt underwent sensitivity/sexual harassment training, but retained his role as an executive producer. Yet the junior female writer who was the target of the alleged unwanted hug and the senior female writer she reported it to have opted to leave the series. CBS TV Studios said in a statement "the matter was promptly investigated by Human Resources and appropriate action was taken to address the complaint."

Two female former Carol's Second Act writers who quit following complaints over Patricia Heaton's husband's improper conduct speak out

The New York Times has the full story of the young Carol's Second Act writer who accused Heaton's husband, executive producer David Hunt, of unwanted hugging. Broti Gupta, a 25-year-old writer, accused Hunt, 65, of touching her inappropriately on two occasions. After an August cast and crew dinner at the L.A. restaurant Pizzaria Mozza -- which was co-owned by Mario Batali until his sexual misconduct controversy -- Hunt allegedly hugged Gupta from the side and ran his hand up the side of her thigh even though they had never met before that night. Gupta opted not to file complaint until weeks later, when Hunt allegedly took her by the shoulders and jerked her forward on the show's set. Gupta told Carol's Second Act senior writer Margee Magee, a co-executive producer on the show, who urged her to tell the showrunners, who forwarded the complaint to human resources. Following the complaint, Gupta and Magee allege that they were kept from rehearsals. The two ended up quitting because they say they felt they were penalized for complaining about Hunt. Showrunners Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern say, however, they would never penalize a staffer for complaining. CBS Television Studios said in a statement that it had dealt with the complaints fairly, adding that Mr. Hunt had “cooperated fully with the process.” Hunt, meanwhile, underwent sexual harassment training. “All we wanted was for him to watch like a 45-minute harassment video,” said Magee. “None of this had to happen.”

A hug. Egad, a hug! Horrors! And she reports it to this person, and they report it to that person. Training, 45 minute video. Honestly, let's all go off the deep end. But no hugs!
