The movie star famous for faking an orgasm in a New York deli in When Harry Met Sally is headed to the small screen. She will produce and star in an NBC comedy about a single mom who decides to return to her job at a New York publishing house, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Former Family Ties writer and Emmy nominee Marc Lawrence will create the half-hour single-camera comedy. Ryan’s character, once a high-profile editor, will have to contend with working for her former intern.

The announcement of the new show — whose air date has yet to be set — comes only weeks after a People magazine cover story on how the now 51-year-old Ryan preferred to stay out of the limelight and focus on her family. Guess she wants back into Hollywood after all.
