Developing a TV comedy for NBC

October 13, 2013 • by admin • 1 Comment »general, television

This looks interesting. Meg is working on a tv comedy show for NBC. If greenlit, it would probably air in fall 2014. Variety has the following report on it’s website:

“Meg Ryan will exec produce and star in a new halfhour, single-cam comedy from Universal TV that is in development at NBC. Ryan would play a sunny, non-confrontational single mom (with teenage kids, an almost-ex-husband and a meddlesome mother-in-law) who returns to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor to find that she now works for Brenda, a neurotic 30-year-old who was once her former intern. Trying to keep everyone happy, Ryan’s character ends up overcomplicating every situation.

Marc Lawrence, who will script, and Jane Berliner (Ryan’s manager) will also exec produce. Lawrence (“Miss Congeniality”) began his career on NBC comedy “Family Ties.” Ryan becomes the latest in an increasingly long line of film stars segueing into television. Most recently, Halle Berry committed to CBS drama series “Extant” and signed a two-year, first look production deal with CBS Television Studios.(…)”

  1. Hmm,very mixed feelings about this!
    Neg:
    -Kinda wish she’s just done a good movie. Sitcoms are a hard racket> many dont make it.
    -NBC is a a very troubled network(Which is probably why they came to her)> even Michael J foxs new show is struggling
    -Very surprised she made such a huge comitment(IF the pilot is greenlighted) with a sitcom, never thought she would want this huge amount of attention again.

    Positive:
    -The character seems similar to those that made her famous in films
    -In will nice to see her HOPEFULLY get some positive attention
    – shes amazing at comedy!
