(Newser) – For the first time in three decades, Meg Ryan will have her own TV show. She's the lead star (and an executive producer) of a new, not-yet-titled NBC sitcom, the Los Angeles Times reports. She'll play a single mom who goes back to work at a New York publishing company, where her former intern is now her young boss. It's interesting news, considering less than two weeks ago People ran a cover story in which the notoriously-private-of-late Ryan said she preferred to focus on her family. (For trivia's sake: Ryan's last co-starring TV role was in 1982's One of the Boys.)

So it won't be called, "That Next Facelift"?

Good thing it's a sitcom. That smile looks permanent.

I'm glad to see her bubble back to the surface. She was a delight once upon a time. I hope her luck has changed for the positive.
