Meg Ryan's leaving rom-coms behind and going to the small screen, like so many of her fellow former A-listers before her. She'll executive produce and star in a sitcom pilot offically ordered by NBC, with a script from Miss Congeniality scribe Marc Lawrence.
Here's the logline for the as of now untitled sitcom: “A sunny, devoted and desperately non-confrontational single mom (Ryan) decides to return to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor to find that she now works for Brenda, he neurotic 30 year old boss who was once her former intern. Now Rose 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.”
Sounds like...a dozen other sitcoms we've seen before. But maybe Ryan's winning, rom-com presence will be the spark to elevate it to a full series order.
