After an investigation into allegations of misconduct, Tom Hollander, the developer, director, executive producer, and showrunner of the upcoming Showtime series American Gigolo, produced by Paramount Television Studios, was emptied from the reboot of the popular 1980 film. Showtime and Paramount TV Studios were caught under fire for their closeness.
According to a spokesperson, "David Hollander is no longer on the drama series American Gigolo and Paramount Television Studios have no longer a producing relationship."
CBS and CBS Studios are a part of Paramount, the same company as Showtime and Paramount TV Studios, which immediately raised concerns about Hollander's future on How We Roll. Although there had been rumors about his behavior among actors and crew members of the CBS comedy, there is no record of any HR complaints against Hollander, who was not involved in the sitcom as a non-writing EP.
How We Roll, which is currently on the market for renewal, follows Tom Smallwood's life story, a stoic Midwest husband and dad who gets laid off from a car assembly line and makes the extraordinary decision to provide for his family by following his dream of becoming a professional bowler.
Kelly Lowes, Chi McBride, Julie White, and Mason Wells are all on the role. Mark Gross and Brian d'Arcy James are the executive producers, and Mark Cendrowski has directed the pilot.
