Amazon said Sharon Tal Yguado, who is the head of event series, will replace Lewis in the interim.

Lewis' exit comes after Amazon Studios chief Roy Price resigned this month after taking a leave of absence in the wake of harassment allegations from a female producer.

The Hollywood Reporter, which earlier reported Lewis' departure, said Lewis will still have a producing deal at Amazon Studios.
