Pamela Adlon Fires 3 Arts’ Dave Becky Following Louis C.K. Harassment Claims

“Better Things” creator and star Pamela Adlon has severed ties with her manager, 3 Arts Entertainment’s Dave Becky.

Becky apologized Monday for his handling of sexual misconduct claims leveled against his former client Louis C.K. In a story published last week by the New York Times detailing years of alleged sexual harassment by C.K. against multiple women, comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov accused Becky of pressuring the two to not talk about their experience with C.K. Goodman and Wolov told the Times that C.K. masturbated in front of them, an incident that C.K. confirmed in a later statement.

Adlon and C.K. have been frequent collaborators, working together on his comedy series “Lucky Louie” and “Louie,” as well as on her FX series “Better Things.” Last week, FX confirmed that C.K. would be removed as an executive producer of “Better Things,” and that the show would no longer be produced in partnership with C.K.’s Pig Newton production company.

Deadline first reported news of Adlon dropping Becky as her manager.

In a statement Friday, Becky said regarding Goodman and Wolov’s allegations against him, ““I profoundly regret and am deeply sorry for not listening to and not understanding what happened to Dana and Julia. If I had, I would have taken this event as seriously as it deserved to be, and I would have confronted Louis, which would have been the right thing to do.” Adlon on Friday issued a statement describing herself as “devastated” by the allegations against C.K.

Becky is a prolific producer and one of the most influential managers of comedic talent in Hollywood. Representatives for Becky clients Aziz Ansari, Amy Poehler, Kevin Hart, John Mulaney, Natasha Lyonne, and Nasim Pedrad did not respond last week to Variety‘s requests for comment regarding allegations made against Becky in the Times article.

Becky is also an executive producer on several current television comedies, including “Baskets” and “Better Things” at FX; “Broad City” at Comedy Central; “The Handmade Project” at NBC; and “Insecure” at HBO. His company, 3 Arts, currently has projects in development at ABC, CBS, Fox, HBO, NBC, and Showtime.
