NEW YORK (AP) - "Bachelor in Paradise" host Chris Harrison says he's sorry for "any inconvenience and disappointment" to the cast, crew and fans of the show, which has been put on a production hold amid misconduct allegations at the filming site in Mexico.
Harrison tells ABC News in a statement that the decision by producer Warner Bros. to halt production on the ABC reality show was made with the "safety and care of the cast and crew of our show" in mind. Warner Bros. spokesman Paul McGuire says the company is investigating the accusations and will take "appropriate responsive action." Neither Harrison, nor McGuire offered any detail on the accusations.
Warner Bros. said Monday that it is "conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations" and "appropriate responsive action" will be taken once the investigation is complete. The company didn't offer any details on the allegations.
"Bachelor in Paradise" is in its fourth season as a spinoff of ABC's "The Bachelor." It brings together former contestants on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" in a tropical location. Its cast was announced last week and was set to premiere on ABC later this summer.
