While we'll mourn that HBO's Nikki Finke-inspired "Tilda"—set to star Diane Keaton, Ellen Page and Wes Bentley, with the pilot episode directed by Bill Condon—never got to series, perhaps this is the next best thing. And with this past November filled with insider baseball-esque blog posts about Finke's exit from Deadline, what Jay Penske's next move will be and more, it's definitely time to laugh.

Deadline: The Nikki Finke Story

While we'll mourn that HBO's Nikki Finke-inspired "Tilda"—set to star Diane Keaton, Ellen Page and Wes Bentley, with the pilot episode directed by Bill Condon—never got to series, perhaps this is the next best thing. And with this past November filled with insider baseball-esque blog posts about Finke's exit from Deadline, what Jay Penske's next move will be and more, it's definitely time to laugh.

So hats off to Funny Or Die, who have dropped a trailer for "Deadline: The Movie." If you've ever rolled your eyes over the scratching matches between the trades over executives you never heard of leaving agencies you could care less about, this is for you. If the words "soft pass" make you cringe, this will hit home. It's a fun goof on the daily trade game, with more than a couple big laughs. So check out the trailer featuring Christina Applegate and Jean Smart below.
