The Oscar-winning actress has recently signed a new talent deal with HBO, which should mean good things, right?
She's worked with HBO before, most recently on the pilot for 'Tilda,' co-starring Ellen Page. The network passed on the project.
According to Deadline, Keaton was previously attached to a comedy project by 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' veteran Marti Noxon a few years ago. The plot had Keaton playing an old-school feminist who starts a sexually candid magazine for women. Obviously that project didn't move forward either.
Now that the network has writers developing new projects for her, can one small request be made? Make them good projects. No, great projects! Please stray from the beaten path. Think 'Veep,' Julia Louis-Dreyfus' new HBO comedy. She's not a vampire, doctor or lawyer, she's the new vice president of the United States. Hijinks ensue.
It's obvious Keaton is game for TV work, so HBO, please get her something worthy of her talents. Writers, put those thinking caps on. This talented lady is ready for you, are you ready for her?
