Hoffman, Junge also added to show about influential blogger

HBO is upping the exec ranks of pilot “Tilda,” the show about an influential Hollywood blogger.

Longtime “Six Feet Under” exec producer Alan Poul has been given exec producer stripes. Writers Alexa Junge and John Hoffman were also recently hired and given exec producer status and will work with director-exec producer Bill Condon to conceptualize the series if it goes forward.

Pilot, which was shot months ago and stars Diane Keaton in the lead role, has not been picked up for series yet, as co-president Richard Plepler and programming prexy Michael Lombardo weigh the decision to go forward or not. Jason Patric and Ellen Page co-star.

Original showrunner Cynthia Mort, who worked with HBO on one-season series “Tell Me You Love Me,” co-wrote the pilot with Condon. Her status with the show is currently undetermined following reported creative differences.

HBO recently ordered half-hour comedy pilot “Documental,” directed, exec produced and co-written by Justin Theroux. Steve Coogan will also exec produce. HBO decided to end polygamy drama “Big Love” following the fifth season, which begins Jan. 16. Show examines a documentarian (Theroux) who has found the subject of his next film — a filmmaker (Coogan) with professional and personal issues.

Also recently also given a pilot order is “Veep,” about a female vice president. Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been discussed for the lead.
