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.
