Thompson on Hollywood
Is it Finke, Waxman or Thompson?

Writer-director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The C-Word) and Cynthia Mort (Tell Me You Love Me) are developing a half-hour Hollywood blogger comedy series, Tilda, for HBO.

Yikes. She'll be nasty and blonde. Trust me.

UPDATE: If they're throwing other names out there, it's to keep the notoriously litigious Finke at bay. Gawker called her up for a rare on-the-record interview. "Why are you so fucking fascinated with me?" Finke told them. "Get a life." She's saving her explanation of her relationship to the HBO show for her blog, natch.

Here's THR, while Movieline posts casting breakdowns.

    I'm sure, if Finke is attached in any way (kinda like a hiker and a foot rash) the show will get 13-14 Nielsen rating ... in her own mind.

    You are right. She will be nasty and blonde. Not sure why anyone is interested in TV/films about journalists, (tons of female magazine editors...zzz) TV execs or bloggers in the 21st century. Back in 70's it all seemed very glamorous and I wanted to go grow up to be a wise cracking, smart dressed New York journalist with great hair. Now everyone writes, everyone blogs, everyone takes pictures. Celebrity is achingly boring. Where's the glamour?
