Steven Spielberg and his production company Amblin Television have left the CBS hit show "Bull". Months after sexual harassment charges against the star of the show, Michael Weatherly.

"We can confirm that we are no longer in touch with the show," said a spokeswoman for Spielberg's company, Amblin Television, the New York Times.

Spielberg and Amblin Television co-heads Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey acted as executive producers of "Bull" for the first three seasons of the processional drama. The show was renewed on May 9 for a fourth season.

In December, The Times reported that CBS paid $ 9.5 million to actress Eliza Dushku to settle her claim that she had been sexually harassed by Weatherly.

Weatherly told the Times that he jokes on Dushku "mocking some lines in the script" and he was "humbled to offend her".

In a lengthy essay from the Boston Globe, Dushku wrote that the harassment was being held in front of the camera and took "weeks" while she worked on the work series.

The industry website Deadline.com described Spielberg's move as "brave" as a long-standing CBS process is considered one of the most lucrative proposals on television.

Spielberg and his wife, Kate Capshaw, were major supporters of the "Time's Up" movement.

Dushku, 38, said in an interview in the March meeting that she had met with Spielberg, "and debated possible solutions to this systemic imbalance of power, abuse, and harassment that we've seen hearing and experiencing and both in our industry and beyond. "
