Meg Ryan is Coming Back to TV!

It was there all along. The heaviness in your chest as you rolled over each morning, reaching for the snooze button. That pain in your heart you felt as you ordered lunch each day — Greek salad again, dressing on the side. But you could never identify what it was, not until today when you read that Meg Ryan is going to star in an NBC comedy. Your heart had been aching, longing really, for Meg Ryan.

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.
