Jeremy Piven’s new show ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ cancelled amid sexual assault allegations

The drama has been scrapped by US network CBS

Jeremy Piven’s new US drama Wisdom of the Crowd has reportedly been cancelled following sexual assault allegations made against the actor.

The former Entourage star – who played Ari Gold in the hit show and its spin-off film – has been accused of sexual assault by four women. He has denied all allegations and recently released polygraph test results in an attempt to prove his innocence.

According to TV Line, Wisdom of the Crowd will be canceled after 13 episodes, with network CBS reportedly dropping plans to order a second season of the show.

Wisdom of the Crowd – which sees Piven star as Jeffrey Tanner, a man searching for the person who murdered his daughter – premiered on CBS in October and has currently aired nine episodes of its original 13 episode run. It is thought that the remaining episodes will continue to air.

Piven has “unequivocally denied” allegations of sexual assault and described himself as “perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me”, adding that he “hope[s] they do not detract from the stories that should be heard”.
