'One Tree Hill' cast, crew accuse showrunner Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment

  'One Tree Hill' cast, crew accuse showrunner Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment "More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress."The cast members and crew, including stars Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, and Bethany Joy Lenz, wrote Monday that they "have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another" following statements made by Wauchope -- a former writer on the series -- on Twitter Saturday accusing Schwann of harassment.

The fifth season of " One Tree Hill " will be unprecedented in the annals of television drama, as the show leaps forward four years. Season four ended as the young characters graduated high school and season five begins post-college, four years later.

The letter states that “Schwahn’ s behavior over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill was something of an ‘ open secret .’ Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatizing , to downright illegal.

For more than 10 years, One Tree Hill, a TV show that followed the drama of a group of teens growing up in a fictional town of North Carolina, dominated the ratings.

Now, cast members – including the show’s female stars Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz – and crew have alleged they faced years of sexual harassment at the hands of the show’s former showrunner, Mark Schwahn.

In an open letter, first published on Variety, 15 women said that Schwahn’s behaviour was “something of an ‘open secret’ during filming”.

“Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally,” the letter continued.

"More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress. Many of us were put in uncomfortable positions and had to swiftly learn to fight back, sometimes physically, because it was made clear to us that the supervisors in the room were not the protectors they were supposed to be.

"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.
