It looks like we can add Oscar winner Diane Keaton to the list of actors making the transition from big to small screen. According to EW, she will be teaming up with Ellen Page for a new HBO half-hour comedy called Tilda.
The show, which in produced by Bill Condon, centers on a powerful and much-feared Hollywood blogger who may or may not be based on Deadline’s Nikki Finke. It will also feature Page as Carolyn, Tilda’s “morally conflicted” assistant.
The case reportedly came together after months of negotiations. What finally sealed the deal may never be publically known but whatever it was, HBO must have offered quite a lot to secure Keaton’s participation. Not to take anything away from Page but as stars go, Keaton is on another level entirely.
Tilda will start shooting next month in Los Angeles with a planned launch on HBO sometime early next year.
