A letter written by writer Audrey Wauchope detailed the inappropriate behavior by Schwahn while working on the show . “All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another,” the letter began.

One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn has been accused of sexual harassment and physical and emotional manipulation by 18 female cast and crew members who worked on the TV drama, including stars Sophia Bush and Hilarie Burton. In a joint letter released Monday

The cast and crew said that they were told if they went public with the claims against the showrunner, One Tree Hill would be cancelled and "hundreds of lovely, qualified, hard-working, and talented people" would lose their jobs.

The cast and crew were inspired to pen the powerful letter after one of the show's writers, Audrey Wauchope, shared on Twitter she had been subjected to "frequent and unwanted touching" during her time on the show.

"Female writers would try to get the spot where the showrunner wouldn't sit as to not be touched," she wrote.

"Sometimes we wouldn't luck out and he'd just squeeze his disgusting body in between us and put his arms around us, grinning.
