Meg Ryan to Star in Epix Comedy Series ‘Picture Paris’

Series is based on short film of the same name starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Meg Ryan is set to star in comedy series “Picture Paris,” which was ordered straight to series at Epix, TheWrap has learned.

The series is based on the short film of the same name directed by Brad Hall.

The film, which starred Julia Louis-Dreyfus, follows a suburban mom who copes with empty-nest syndrome by planning a dream trip to Paris with her husband, but things don’t quite go according to plan.

Hall will write, direct and executive produce the series along with Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor. Ryan will also serve as an EP.

This would mark Ryan’s first TV series regular role since 1985’s “Wildside.” She most recently made her directorial debut with the film “Ithaca,” which she also starred in. She is represented by Gersh.
