According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, HBO is developing 'Tilda,' a half-hour comedy series about a powerful female online showbiz journalist with a no-holds-barred style. The pay cable network has tapped Oscar-winning writer-director Bill Condon and 'Tell Me You Love Me' creator Cynthia Mort for the new series.

Condon -- who may direct if the project gets a green light -- and Mort are writing and executive producing. This is the second foray into TV directing for Condon; he recently helmed his first pilot, the Laura Linney dark comedy 'The C-Word,' which Showtime picked up for a series.

Condon has a strong film track record. He directed and won an Oscar for writing "Gods and Monsters," and wrote and directed 'Kinsey' and 'Dreamgirls.'

Condon and Mort won't have to look far for inspiration for 'Tilda': Three veteran female Hollywood print reporters -- Nikki Finke, Sharon Waxman and Anne Thompson -- have given up print for the online world.
