Fred Savage has been dropped as executive producer and director of the rebooted The good years amid allegations of inappropriate conduct, the TV show’s production company has confirmed.
“Recently, we were made aware of allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fred Savage, and as policy dictates, an investigation was launched. Upon completion, the decision was made to terminate his employment as as executive producer and director of The good years“, said a statement from 20th Television on Saturday.
20th Television did not immediately provide additional details. A spokesperson for Savage did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Savage, 45, was a child star when he appeared on the original series, which aired on ABC from 1988 to 1993, and followed a suburban white family through the late 1960s and early 1970s.
A new version of the show, which features Don Cheadle as narrator, premiered last fall. The new series revolves around a black family living in Montgomery, Alabama in the late 1960s.
