Sony TV & CBS Studios Sued as Actress Alleges "The Young and the Restless" Showrunner Tony Morina Sexually Harassed Her

Recommended Posts



Actress Briana Thomas is suing Sony Pictures Television and CBS Studios, the producers of long-running soap The Young and the Restless, alleging harassment on the set from its showrunner, Anthony “Tony” Morina.

Thomas appeared on the show in a background role as a barista in 2018 and 2019. Legal papers filed Thursday in LA Superior Court (read here) claim in detail that during that time, EP Morina commented on her body, made repeated advances, offered “private acting lessons,” then fired her when he was rebuffed.

The complaint states that Morina would leer at Thomas, complimenting her looks and allegedly telling her she could “really be something” on the show. He allegedly asked her to remove a sarong so he could see her in a bikini in one poolside scene.
