"Girls" writer-producer Murray Miller was accused Friday of sexually assaulting "Passenger" actress Aurora Perrineau. Perrineau filed a report of the alleged incident that occurred in 2012 with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The actress was 17 at the time of the alleged assault.

Miller, 41, boasts numerous writing and producing credits. Outside of the critically acclaimed HBO series "Girls," Miller has written multiple episodes for animated series "American Dad!" and "King of the Hill." The California native previously worked as a writer for MTV Movie Awards in 2005 and 2017. He has also occasionally appeared onscreen in minor roles in "The Five Year Engagement," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," as well as "Girls," which are all projects helmed by Judd Apatow's production company.

Miller's most recent credits include serving as a writer and executive producer for HBO's televised movie "Tour de Pharmacy" and "Max," a TV film directed by Lena Dunham, the star and executive producer of "Girls." He is also set to pen the script for a buddy-cop comedy starring Kumail Nanjiani and John Cena.

"I filed a police report today. I cannot talk about the investigation that is happening currently," Perrineau said Friday in a statement to The Wrap. "He was flirting with me. I told him repeatedly that I was 17 years old."

Miller's legal team has denied all allegations made by Perrineau. The actress alleged that he was drunk when she encountered him with a group of friends at the Standard Hotel. She claimed to have allegedly woken up naked in bed with the writer on top of her as he allegedly proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse without her consent. Perrineau also reportedly passed a lie detector test in September about the incident.

"Mr. Miller categorically and vehemently denies Ms. Perrineau's outrageous claims," attorney Don Walerstein said Friday in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "After being contacted several weeks ago by lawyers who — on Ms. Perrineau’s behalf — sought substantial monetary damages from him, Mr. Miller’s legal team gathered overwhelming evidence directly contradicting these false and offensive claims."

Murray's apparent actions were defended on Friday by "Girls" co-showrunners Dunham and Jenni Konner. Dunham and Konner assert that Perrineau's claims are "one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year."

"It's a hugely important time of change and, like every feminist in Hollywood and beyond, we celebrate," the co-showrunners said Friday in a statement obtained by Variety. "But during every time of change, there are also incidences of the culture, in its enthusiasm and zeal, taking down the wrong targets. We believe, having worked closely with him for more than half a decade, that this is the case with Murray Miller."

Murray has not directly commented on Perrineau's allegations at this time.
