Meg Ryan Is Getting a TV Show

Meg Ryan attends the Lancia Cafe during the Taormina Filmfest 2013  on June 20, 2013 in Taormina, Italy.

Just another reason to be forever wary of People magazine cover stories. Despite their insistence that Meg Ryan "traded fame for a very private life in New York" and was giving up acting, according to The Hollywood Reporter, she will soon be getting her own half-hour comedy on NBC. From Family Ties and Miss Congeniality writer Marc Lawrence, Ryan will play "a sunny, devoted and desperately non-confrontational single mom who decides to return to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor." Meg Ryan can certainly do non-confrontational, and perhaps she's even learned something about publishing since You've Got Mail. F-O-X.
