[5.30 - French Time] It had to happen. Since the time your humble servant jokes that someday someone will make a movie with Meryl Streep as our dear She Who Must Be Read, aka Nikki Finke of Well, I read on the Hollywood Reporter website that pay cable channel HBO will give her the sitcom treatment!

According to THR, HBO is developing Tilda, a pilot for a half-hour comedy series from Oscar-winning writer/director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Dreamgirls) and Cynthia Mort. The project is centered on "a powerful female online showbiz journalist with a no-holds-barred style" ( Of course the THR piece gives other names but there can be only one She Who Must Be Read (maybe I should trademark this...)

If it becomes a success I'm looking forward to watch the crossover between this and Entourage, a show you can't really enjoy if you live ten miles beyond Los Angeles.
