Netflix backs 'Master of None' despite misconduct claim

July 29, 2018 - 5:19 pm

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Netflix is standing by "Master of None" and Aziz Ansari despite a sexual misconduct allegation against him earlier this year.

Cindy Holland, a programming executive for the streaming service, said there's been thought given to a third season for the comedy starring and co-created by Ansari.

Netflix would "certainly be happy" to make another "Master of None" season with Ansari, Holland told a TV critics' meeting Sunday.

But Holland didn't commit to it or indicate what the production or release timeline might be.

The allegation that Ansari acted improperly on a date was published in January of this year by website Babe.net, which didn't identify the accuser.

Ansari acknowledged in January that he apologized to a woman in 2017 for her discomfort during what he thought was a consensual sexual encounter.
