Every woman born in the Eighties and Nineties knows that there's something special about these films: You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless In Seattle.

Why?

Because they have Meg Ryan in them, that's why.

Well, prepare to rejoice because, it's just been announced that Ryan is set for a television comeback, as the star in a half-hour comedy series titled, Picture Paris.

Based on the 2011 short film, the series centres on a suburban mother with grown-up children whose dream trip to Paris with her husband turns out to be a travesty.

Ryan – who is best known for her roles on the silver screen – first made a name for herself on television in As the World Turns, almost 30 years ago.
