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.
