MTV has temporarily suspended production on “Catfish: The TV Show” amid sexual misconduct claims made against host Nev Schulman.
According to the The Daily Beast, MTV has haulted production to investigate unspecified misconduct claims involving Schulman, who also serves as the show’s executive producer.
“We take these allegations very seriously. We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation,” a spokesperson for MTV said in a statement to The Daily Beast.
“Catfish” is co-hosted by Schulman and Max Joseph. Schulman’s own online relationship chronicled in the 2010 documentary film, “Catfish,” spawned the investigative MTV series, which is now in its seventh season.
The Blast reached out to Schulman and MTV for comment.
