Netflix Didn’t Completely Quit Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K., As Streamers Keep Accused Assaulters’ Old Shows
Days after Netflix fired Kevin Spacey from “House of Cards” and canceled an upcoming Louis C.K. standup special, both disgraced stars can still be found on the streaming service.

Five pre-existing Louis C.K. comedy specials, including this spring’s “Louis C.K. 2017,” continue to live on the site, available for viewing.

Meanwhile, four projects still pop up when searching for Spacey’s name, including “House of Cards” and the documentary “Now: In the Wings on a World Stage,” a behind the scenes look at Spacey starring in the Bridge Project production of “Richard III.”

That’s not to say that the streaming service isn’t taking a hit: Netflix scrapped plans to release the Spacey starrer “Gore,” a Gore Vidal biopic that had already finished shooting. And it may have to start over on Season 6 of “House of Cards,” with Robin Wright now as star, even though that show had already been shooting.

Louis C.K. writing CBS comedy
Lucky Louie stars Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon are reuniting for a new half-hour series project.

The pair have inked a deal to co-create and co-write a multicamera comedy for CBS and CBS Paramount Network TV.

C.K. and Adlon also intend to star in the comedy about a married couple who have been together too long and have too many children.

Comedian C.K. will serve as an executive producer on the project, which has received a script commitment from CBS.

C.K. and Adlon also portrayed a married couple on C.K.'s raunchy sitcom Lucky Louie for HBO. The pair penned an episode of the series titled Discipline.

C.K., who is filming the Ricky Gervais-directed feature comedy This Side of the Truth, recently completed his upcoming HBO stand-up special Louis C.K.: Chewed Up. He won an Emmy for his writing work on The Chris Rock Show.

Adlon, who won an Emmy for her voice-over work on Fox's long-running animated series King of the Hill, also has a role on the Showtime series Californication.

C.K. is repped by UTA and 3 Arts.
