NEW YORK (CNN) — The CBS producer accused of trying to extort $2 million from “Late Show” host David Letterman pleaded not guilty Friday in a Manhattan courtroom.

The producer, Robert Joel “Joe” Halderman, 51, of Norwalk, Connecticut, allegedly told Letterman last month that he would disclose Letterman’s dalliances with his show’s staffers unless he paid the money.

Halderman is charged with first-degree attempted grand larceny, and has been suspended from his CBS job.
