A Warner Bros. executive has detailed the harassment allegations against “Fuller House” creator Jeff Franklin, who was dropped from the show last year.

Franklin filed a lawsuit in April against writer Bryan Behar, who became the showrunner upon Franklin’s departure. Franklin accused Behar of spearheading a campaign to oust him by fabricating allegations and distorting incidents. He also accused Behar of leaking the allegations to the press.

In his response, Behar denied speaking to the press about the allegations. He also said he participated in an internal probe only reluctantly, and because he believed it was mandatory. Behar’s attorney attached a declaration from Silisha Platon, Warner Bros.’ vice president of labor relations, who led the internal investigation.

Platon also confirmed that Franklin had been investigated in 2016, after concerns were raised about Franklin’s handling of pregnancy-related requests. Franklin was also accused of treating men and women differently in the writers’ room.

“The investigation was concluded and Franklin received verbal counseling as to the necessity of appropriate, business-like behavior and equal treatment,” Platon said.

Following the 2018 investigation, Platon concluded that Franklin had created a toxic environment for women and people of color, and recommended that his contract not be renewed.

Behar is seeking to have the case dismissed, and is asking that Franklin be ordered to pay his attorneys’ fees.
