Meg Ryan is signed on to star in The Best Awful, an HBO miniseries adaptation of the Carrie Fisher novel, The Hollywood Reporter and Reuters reported Thursday.
The novel extends the story of Fisher's loosely autobiographical novel, Postcards From the Edge, which is about a bipolar ex-actress with a gay ex-husband. The drama in her life induces her dependency on prescribed drugs and a wild life.
Fisher is currently onstage at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles performing a one-woman show titled Wishful Drinking. (The Advocate)
