NEW YORK — John Landgraf, the chief executive of the FX network, has said that an investigation into Louis C.K.’s workplace behavior there uncovered no new allegations of sexual misconduct against the comedian.

“We did not find any issues, complaints or incidents of misconduct of any kind in the eight years we worked together,” Landgraf said Friday at a media event for the Television Critics Association.

FX ended its relationship with C.K., a Newton native, in November after he was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior by five women. They described a variety of disturbing encounters with Louis C.K. dating from the late ‘90s to 2005, including two instances in which he exposed himself and masturbated in front of three of the women.

Louis C.K. responded to those allegations by issuing a statement saying, “These stories are true.”
