“When Harry Met Sally” star Meg Ryan has lined up her first major television role in 30 years, Variety reports.
The actress will lead a comedy series that’s in the works at Epix, according to the report. Epix wasn’t commenting on the project.
“The half-hour series, written by Brad Hall, will be a TV adaptation of his short film ‘Picture Paris,’ taking the same title,” Variety reports. “‘Picture Paris,’ like the short that starred Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Hall’s wife), will focus on a suburban empty-nester who heads to Paris with her husband, only to find the trip isn’t quite the dream she anticipated.”
Hall is set to write and direct the project, which is reportedly being fast-tracked to go straight to series.
