Meg Ryan Signs For Sitcom Pilot on NBC

October 14, 2013 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 0 Comments

NBC, which continues to search for the one show that can put it back on the sitcom back (and it is not any of the three new entries this season) has signed Meg Ryan to star in and executive produce a potential new comedy. The “Sleepless in Seattle” and “When Harry Met Sally” star will play a sweet, devoted and non-confrontational single mother who decides to return to work at her former publishing house, where she will be supervised by her 30-year-old former intern. The proposed project comes from “Family Ties” writer Marc Lawrence.

Ryan, who was a regular on CBS daytime drama “As the World Turns” from 1982 to 1984, has not appeared as a series regular since a short-lived ABC western in 1985 called “Wildside.” In1982, she appeared opposite Mickey Rooney and Dana Carvey in a failed NBC sitcom called “One of the Boys.”
