NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — First Netflix put its Bill Cosby comedy special on hold, and now NBC has decided against moving forward with it’s own Cosby project.

NBC announced on Wednesday that the network has opted not to continue developing a sitcom with the 77-year-old comedian amid growing sexual assault allegations against Cosby.

“We can confirm that the Cosby project is no longer in development,” NBC said.

The network had no further comment.

On Tuesday, Netflix put its comedy special titled “Bill Cosby 77” on hold.

The news also comes one day after former supermodel Janice Dickinson became the latest woman to publicly accuse Cosby of sexual assault.

Cosby’s lawyer on Wednesday called that accusation a lie.

“Janice Dickinson’s story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie,” attorney Martin Singer said. “There is a glaring contradiction between what she is claiming now for the first time and what she wrote in her own book and what she told the media back in 2002.”
