Variety's announcement was met with backlash from showrunners such as Grey's Anatomy's Krista Vernoff and TV stars like Busy Philipps, who named a bunch of female writers who could've participated. "We hear you loud and clear, and are currently working on rectifying our mistake," Variety tweeted. Meanwhile, The Post wrter Liz Hannah scheduled a female showrunner panel in response to Variety's panel. "I'm glad Variety apologized," tweeted Better Call Saul writer Gennifer Hutchison. "It's interesting though, from the lists folks are generating of female showrunners and upper level female writers, to see just how big of an 'oversight' this was. This is what we mean when we talk inherent bias. They didn't even think about it."
