An animated series created by Louis C.K. has been canceled following his admission of sexual misconduct, according to The Hollywood Reporter Monday.

The network TBS announced that they have scrapped “The Cops” completely after production was put on hold two months ago following the 50-year-old actor’s confession to numerous allegations of sexual harassment by multiple woman. The 10-episode series was previously scheduled to launch this year.  (RELATED: This New Louis C.K. Movie Has Harvey Weinstein Written All Over It)

The network was just the latest entertainment company to cut ties with the disgraced comedian. Universal and Illumination Animation announced shortly after his admission that he would not be reprising the voice role of his character Dog Max C.K. from the animated sequel “The Secret Life of Pets 2.” The comedian played the lead character in “The Secret Life of Pets” that came out in 2016.  

HBO and Netflix also took similar actions, refusing to air his comedy special. In addition, The Orchard, the distribution company for his movie “I Love You Daddy,” canceled the release of his film.

Shortly after the bombshell report in November in The New York Times came out about the various allegations of sexual misconduct against him, the comedian admitted that the stories were true.

“I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them,” C.K.’s statement read. “Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.”
