The Peacock will have what Meg’s having.
EW has confirmed that NBC has ordered a pilot starring onetime rom-com queen Meg Ryan, who will both headline and executive produce the half-hour comedy. (The Hollywood Reporter first posted the news.) Here’s the official logline:
So… Meg Saves the World, then?
Miss Congeniality writer Marc Lawrence penned the script and will co-executive produce, alongside Ryan and Ryan’s manager Jane Berliner. If the series is picked up, it will mark Ryan’s first starring role on TV since the short-lived 1985 western Wildside — though the Golden Globe nominee has appeared sporadically in guest roles on shows including Curb Your Enthusiasm and, more recently, Showtime’s Web Therapy.
