Meg Ryan is Coming Back to TV!
The Queen of the Rom-Com has been largely MIA recently (People even reported this month that she'd retired from acting), but she's set to produce and star in the as-yet-untitled single-camera comedy as a single mom who returns to work at a publishing house. The Hollywood Reporter has the rundown:
Ryan will play a sunny, devoted and desperately nonconfrontational single mom who decides to return to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor to find that she now works for Brenda, a neurotic 30-year-old who was once her former intern. Now she must find a way to keep her boss, her teenage kids, her almost ex-husband and her meddlesome mother-in-law all happy, which results in her overcomplicating every situation and somehow always making it worse.Bridget Jones: The TV Show will be written by Marc Lawrence, who wrote Miss Congeniality and Two Weeks Notice.
