HBO always comes up with fairly interesting comedy projects, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they'll go to series. After all, Tilda (which was to be based, in part, on the life of reporter Nikki Finke), starring Diane Keaton and Ellen Page was not picked up by the network after a lengthy period. Fingers crossed Spring/Fall has a better end story. The fashion-set comedy could be the HBO answer to Cougar Town.
Hope Davis has been added to the cast of the new show opposite Tea Leoni. The two will co-star as fashion designers who have an unusual relationship and a different approach to their careers. Jake Kasdan will direct the pilot, which could be a female-centric version of How to Make It In America. That Davis and Leoni still look great for their respectively advancing ages is only a bonus.
