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.
