“Tilda” won’t be HBO’s next comedy series.
In a two-sentence statement, the pay cabler said: “HBO has decided not to move forward with ‘Tilda.’ Despite everyone’s best efforts, ultimately this was not the right show for us at this time.” The network declined to elaborate.
Half-hour pilot, which underwent reshoots, starred Diane Keaton as a prominent Hollywood blogger and Ellen Page as a young assistant trying to learn the showbiz ropes.
Pilot was written by Bill Condon and Cynthia Mort, who had worked with HBO on “Tell Me You Love Me.”
Last month, HBO picked up the comedy pilot “Girls” written by Lena Dunham, who directed, wrote and appeared in indie fave “Tiny Furniture.”
Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner exec produce “Girls” with Dunham. Shooting will begin in the spring in New York.
