City On A Hill Season 2 The Story Behind Macleans Demotion

Maclean was demoted after an internal investigation into misconduct allegations by Showtime. Maclean was the subject of an anonymous complaint post-City And A Hill’s first season wrapping. During the investigation, Showtime revealed that “inappropriate comments were made in violation of CBS policy.” As a result, Maclean will be serving as a writer only for the second season and is not allowed in post-production activities.

The investigation was done in September, prior to the filming of season 2, and now Showtime has declared the matter closed.

He also added that he fully cooperated with the investigation and is happy to know the all the allegations are unfounded.
