Amazon.com investigated an allegation that the head of its TV and film studio, Roy Price, made unwanted sexual remarks to Isa Hackett, an important producer of one of its highest-profile shows, according to Ms. Hackett, other people with knowledge of the inquiry and communications viewed by The Information.

Mr. Price allegedly made the remarks to Ms. Hackett, an executive producer of Amazon’s streaming video series “The Man in the High Castle,” in July 2015 after a day of promotional events for the show at Comic-Con in San Diego, the people say. Ms. Hackett is the daughter of author Philip K. Dick, whose novel inspired the series. The investigation began shortly afterwards.
