HBO and Penguin Books have canceled their movie and book projects based on the 2016 election in the wake of sexual harassment accusations directed at co-writer Mark Halperin.

"HBO is no longer proceeding with the project tied to the untitled book co-authored by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann on the 2016 presidential election. HBO has no tolerance for sexual harassment within the company or its productions," the network said in a Thursday announcement, according to Politico.

Penguin Press also announced it was cutting ties with Halperin, who co-wrote with Heilemann books that analyzed the two previous presidential elections in 2008 and 2012, “Game Change” and “Double Down,” the Politico report said.

The HBO miniseries project was going to examine the 2016 presidential election, according to Variety.

Halperin is leaving both NBC and MSNBC after five women accused him of sexual harassment.
