Ava DuVernay’s Array has parted ways with Spotify and will no longer be making podcasts for the audio giant.
Last year, Array and Spotify had announced a multiyear first-look deal for Array to produce scripted and unscripted podcasts with Gimlet, the studio owned by Spotify.
Though no podcasts or shows had yet been released under the pact, multiple projects were in development.
Array’s exit from Spotify comes as the streaming company has faced continued scrutiny over its marquee podcaster, Joe Rogan, who hosts the Spotify-exclusive The Joe Rogan Experience show.
The New York Times first reported that Array had cut ties with Spotify.
