Amazon Studios head Roy Price has resigned amid a sexual harassment claim from an employee.

Roy Price at an Amazon event in 2013. Under Price, Amazon launched shows including "Catastrophe", "Bosch", and the Emmy-winning "Transparent".

Isa Hackett, an EP on Amazon's "Man in the High Castle", told the Hollywood Reporter that Price, 51, propositioned her in a taxi, telling her that she would "love (his) d-k".

But Price's wedding has already been a casualty.

CNN's Brian Stelter first reported news of Price's resignation on Tuesday.

Price was suspended from the company five days ago following an accusation from an executive producer that Price sexually harassed her during San Diego Comic-Con in 2015.

The NFLPA has since filed a motion to recall the order and allow it the opportunity to seek an appeal in Texas. Simply vacating the injunction does not satisfy the need for a ruling on the matter.

That same day, Amazon released a statement saying Price had been placed on a leave of absence.

Albert Cheng has been named to run Amazon Studios on an interim basis.

The difference last week was that Hackett gave Masters an on-the-record interview with details about the incident.

Hackett said that Price started making lewd comments during a cab ride to the party - and continued even after she told him she's a lesbian with a wife and children, the magazine reported. Amazon Studios has since grown into an original TV show and film studio.

Last week Amazon said it would not go forward with Weinstein Co. on the projects.
