Don’t blame new showrunner David Graziano for Kelli Giddish’s exit from “Law & Order: SVU” after 12 seasons. “You might take a moment to entertain the idea that things are more complex than they appear in a world of emojis and tweets,” Graziano wrote on Giddish’s Instagram page, addressing fans upset by her departure. “All I’ll say is Kelli has handled this with the most incredibly classy comportment. She is, without a doubt, one of the finest industry professionals I’ve come across in my 24 years of writing for television. I’m saddened by her looming exit. It’ll be my lucky day if I ever get to write for her again.”

In an open letter on Twitter, “Batgirl” actress Ivory Aquino – whose Alysia Yeoh would have been the first major trans character in a DC Comics film – asked Warner Bros. Discovery President and CEO David Zaslav to reconsider shelving the superhero movie. “We’ve been fortunate to have such amazing supporters since the beginning, from Glasgow where we filmed and from all over the world,” wrote Aquino. “Now, more people know about our labor of love and are eager to see the movie. I do hope you get to read this letter. Consider releasing ‘Batgirl.’ She’s always been an underdog and has nowhere to go but up.”

Canceling the release of “Batgirl” was one belt-tightening measure at Warner Bros. Discovery post-merger.

Execs exiting the company include Jonathan Young, VP Original Programming and Production for EMEA; Christian Wikander, VP and Commissioning Editor of Original Programming, Nordics; and Annelies Sitvast, Head of Unscripted Original Production.
