Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs are reacting after former Charmed producer Krista Vernoff explained why she quit for show.
Vernoff is currently the showrunner for Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19. She told The Hollywood Reporter that she was worried Charmed was becoming “bad for the world,” saying that she was pressured to write scenes she didn’t feel comfortable with.
She explained: “I signed on because Charmed was a girl-power show, and about halfway through there was an episode where Alyssa Milano comes out in mermaid pasties and there was a huge spike in male viewership, and then every episode after, the question would come from the network, 'How are we getting the girls naked this week?'”
