Chris Albrecht, President of Legendary Television and former Chairman of HBO, has been placed on a leave of absence, according to a company spokesperson. The move comes as forthcoming book It’s Not TV: The Spectacular Rise, Revolution, and Future of HBO offers new details about a 1991 incident in which Albrecht choked, then allegedly disparaged a staffer, who left following a settlement brokered by HBO. “After more than 30 years an old, flawed story is now being refurbished and recycled for the sake of sales,” said Albrecht in a statement. “I have sincerely apologized to those whom I offended with disrespect and utterly unacceptable behavior. But that doesn’t sell books or generate media attention.” The book comes out November 1.
