Eric Weinberg, the executive producer and writer of the hit TV show “Scrubs” and many others, has been charged with sexually assaulting five women he lured into a photo shoot, and there may be many more victims, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

Weinberg, 62, was arrested Tuesday, nearly a week after he was charged with 18 felony counts, including rape, oral sex, forcible sexual penetration, sexual restraint, false imprisonment with violence, assault with force bodily harm and attempted forcible penetration with a foreign object, according to the District Prosecutor’s Office.

He was released on $5 million bail that day. His trial was set for October 25.

An email to Weinberg’s agent seeking comment was not immediately returned.

Weinberg has been charged in alleged assaults between 2014 and 2019, but investigators say they believe there may be other victims of assaults dating back to the 1990s, District Attorney George Gascon said at a news conference.

He urged them to speak.

“The defendant relied on his Hollywood credentials to lure young women to photo shoots where he allegedly sexually assaulted them,” Gascon said. “Power and influence can corrupt some to harm others, often resulting in lifelong trauma for those who are victimized.”

Los Angeles police Detective Ryan Lamar said investigators are looking into information from the tip regarding possible other attacks by Weinberg.

Weinberg had previously been investigated by police several times, but prosecutors did not file charges due to a lack of evidence, Gascon said.

Weinberg co-executive produced nearly 100 episodes of the NBC hospital drama “Scrubs” between 2000 and 2006 and also wrote about a dozen episodes, according to IMDB.

He also co-executive produced Californication in 2007 and has produced and written other shows, including Anger Management, Men at Work, Veronica’s Closet and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.

In 2020, documents filed in Weinberg’s divorce and child custody case included allegations by three women that he sexually assaulted him during photo shoots, according to the Los Angeles Times.

One woman claimed she met Weinberg at a North Hollywood coffee shop in 2014, when she was 22, and he convinced her to come to his home for a photo shoot where she stripped down to her underwear. The woman alleged that Weinberg grabbed her, forced her to perform oral sex, choked her and then raped her while taking pictures, according to documents cited by the Times.
