HBO won't be adding Diane Keaton to their list of television stars soon. The network recently passed on a television pilot named "Tilda" starring the actress as a ruthless Hollywood blogger that was allegedly inspired by Deadline.com Founder and Editor In Chief, Nikki Finke, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The pilot was written by "Dreamgirls" director Bill Condon and "Tell Me You Love Me" creator Cynthia Mort. The comedy pilot also starred "Juno" actress Ellen Page and "My Sister's Keeper" actor Jason Patric.

"HBO has decided not to move forward with 'Tilda,'" HBO told the industry paper in a statement. "Despite everyone's best efforts ultimately this was not the right show for us at this time."

According to Deadline.com Finke was not part of the development process of the series but, "word is HBO is still interested in a show about her, this time with her on board from the beginning."
