Okay, I think we can say we’ve reached “Peak TV” if the world’s most notable actors and actresses decide to do TV en masse. And lo and behold, we might be getting there sooner rather than later. Per Deadline:
In a very competitive situation with three networks pursuing, Epix has landed Picture Paris, a half-hour comedy series project starring Meg Ryan. The comedy, from Brad Hall, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and Entertainment One, has been put in fast-track development for a potential straight-to-series order. Epix declined comment.
Picture Paris is based on the 2011 short film written and directed by Hall, which starred his wife, actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It centers on a suburban mom whose dream trip to Paris with her husband after they become empty-nesters may not quite live up to expectations.
To be honest, I couldn’t tell you the last movie Meg Ryan was in, but Kate & Leopold was pretty good. Right?
