Los Angeles – Time Warner’s (NYSE: TWX) HBO has announced plans to
develop a series about "a powerful female online showbiz journalist with a
no-holds barred style," leading many to speculate the subject is Nikki
Finke, the one-time LA Weekly columnist who started her own successful blog
before being hired by Media Corp. to run Gawker
contacted Finke for comment, who said she would be posting on the news on her
own site shortly. The Hollywood Reporter, meanwhile, said HBO did not obtain
Finke’s life rights before moving forward with the project, and does not plan
to work with her on the show.
