It’s not director Ben Stiller who is responsible for the toxic environment on the set of Severance. Reportedly the creator of the series, Dan Erickson, and the veteran writer they brought in to help, Mark Friedman, hate each other, which has created a toxic environment on the set. Stiller brought in Beau Willimon (House of Cards, Andor) to steer Severance through season three, but he’s also reportedly helping out with the troubled season two. Stiller and Apple TV+ do not deny that Willimon was brought in, but they claim that the series is on schedule and on budget. (Puck)
