'One Tree Hill' creator faces sexual harassment allegations

One Tree Hill Mark Schwahn

She also wrote that he would touch female cast and crew members inappropriately and that he showed naked photos of a woman he was seeing to men on set. "This is such a violation, both to the actress and to the men forced to look and participate", she wrote.

"To use terminology that has become familiar as the systemic reality of sexual harassment and assault has come more and more to light, Mark Schwahn's behavior over the duration of the filming of "One Tree Hill" was something of an 'open secret, '" said the letter, provided to CNN by a representative for Bush.

According to the letter, numerous women who worked on the show are still dealing with the aftermath of the alleged workplace misconduct: "More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress".

"Huge numbers of us were addressed in ways that ran the range from profoundly irritating, to damaging, to out and out unlawful", the letter proceeds. For the first few seasons, we watched two brothers (Chad Michael Murray and James Lafferty) fight for the affection of their father while dealing with their complicated love lives. In a statement, the companies behind that show say they are "monitoring the information carefully" and "are committed to providing a safe working environment in which everyone is treated respectfully and professionally".

In another tweet, Wauchope describes how Schwahn pulled aside her female writing partner, Rachel Specter, to know if she wanted to follow through on getting married, asking if he could have a shot. "He's insane. NO. He's abusive", she tweeted. "Also, I'm irate and miserable and everything else that years after the fact I don't feel safe to have the capacity to do anything genuine about various things it is by all accounts happening everywhere on this town".

In an unprecedented show of unity on a television series or movie, almost all of the show's core cast-as well as some crew members-have shown support for the female cast and crew after the letter was published.

According to the allegations, One Tree Hill's cast and crew put on Schwahn, he harassed them during The CW TV show aired from 2003 to 2012.

On social media, the former cast and crew who signed the letter were met with support by other fellow cast mates.

But E! Network which now airs the producer's ongoing series, The Royals, shares that they are already carefully looking into the matter.

"They echo the greater rallying cry that must lead us to change: Believe Women", they wrote in conclusion. "We are all in this together". Although, they also mention in the letter - which can be read in full at Variety - that the alleged harassment is something they've always remained open about behind closed doors, acting as a support system to each other.
