HBO Passes on Hollywood Blogger Comedy 'Tilda'

Diane Keaton was to have starred as a ruthless entertainment reporter.

Despite a high-profile cast and plenty of industry buzz, HBO has decided to pass on the pilot Tilda.
The comedy, starring Diane Keaton as a ruthless and unethical Hollywood blogger, was one of the most-discussed projects at the pay cable network because the lead character was said to have been inspired by Deadline Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke. The pilot, written by Bill Condon and Tell Me You Love Me creator Cynthia Mort, also featured Ellen Page and Jason Patric.

But friction on the set lead to Mort leaving the project, and now the network has pulled the plug.

"HBO has decided not to move forward with Tilda," HBO tells THR in a statement. "Despite everyone's best efforts ultimately this was not the right show for us at this time."
