Netflix backs Grasp of None writer Aziz Ansari in spite of misconduct declare


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, 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.
