diane keaton hbo talent deal Diane Keaton heads back to HBO with post 'Tilda' talent deal

HBO may have taken a pass on “Tilda,” the comedic pilot loosely based on Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke, but the network clearly remains interested in star Diane Keaton.

The 65-year-old actress signed a new talent holding deal with HBO, and Deadline reports writers are currently developing possible projects for her.

Keaton’s history at HBO has thus far been full of misses.

Pilot production on “Tilda,” which saw her filling the titular role, was marred with behind-the-scenes drama. Showrunner Cynthia Mort left after reportedly clashing with producer/director Bill Condon, making way for former “Six Feet Under” producer Alan Poul. HBO eventually axed the project altogether, chalking it up to the dreaded “not the right show for us at this time.”

Before “Tilda,” Keaton originally signed a deal with HBO that attached her to a comedy project from “Buffy” scribe and new “Glee” consulting producer Marti Noxon. The series was to follow a feminist leader trying to reinvigorate her cause with a sexy women’s magazine.

Maybe third time’s the charm.
