Meg Ryan is bringing her business to the small screen.

The “Sleepless in Seattle” star has entered a development deal for a new comedy, which Ryan would star in and executive produce.

Ryan, 51, will play Rose, a sunny, devoted and desperately non-confrontational single mom who decides to return to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor to find that she now works for Brenda, her neurotic 30-year-old boss who was once her intern.

Rose must find a way to keep her boss, her teen-age kids, her almost ex-husband and her meddlesome mother-in-law all happy, which results in her over-complicating every situation and somehow always making it worse.

Ryan’s manager, Jane Berliner, is also executive-producing the project, which comes via Universal TV.

Marc Lawrence (“Miss Congeniality”) is writing the project as well as executive producing.
