Never, in our wildest dreams, did we ever imagine television might give us a weekly outlet for Diane Keaton. So we remained optimistic when "Tilda" -- HBO's Nikki Finke-inspired pilot about a Hollywood blogger -- seemed to be unraveling.
But Vulture confirms the inevitable, that HBO has dropped the project, citing a network representative who says it's "not the right show for us at this time."
"Tilda" has been in the mud since last summer, when showrunner Cynthia Mort left after reportedly clashing with producer/director Bill Condon. Former "Six Feet Under" producer Alan Poul came on board to retool the show in Mort's absence, but apparently it was in vain.
Though maybe it wasn't all in vain... we did learn something. Diane Keaton is open to television work. So somebody start writing her a role that will actually make it to series.
