Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik to reunite for new FOX comedy Carla
According to Variety, The Big Bang Theory alums Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik will be reuniting to star in Fox‘s upcoming multi-cam comedy titled Carla. The series will mark Parsons and Bialik’s first TV project since The Big Bang Theory which had premiered its twelfth and final season last May.
Carla will follow the story of a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that you cannot have everything you want and still be happy. That is why she spent the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, KY.
“In pursuing a hand-crafted approach to our scripted development, Charlie and I knew ‘Carla,’ written by Darlene Hunt, was a project with great potential that could become the centerpiece of our comedy slate – and Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik coming to Fox Entertainment is obviously an enormous part of that equation,” Fox Entertainment’s President of Entertainment for Fox Entertainment, Michael Thorn said “‘Carla’ is an unapologetically big, broad multi-cam with a strong female point-of-view, pushing the format in a way that will be distinctive. With the A+ creative team, our partners at Warner Bros., led by the inimitable Peter Roth, and BBC Studios, we think we have something truly special here.”
Based on the BBC original Miranda, the series is created by Miranda Hart. It will be written and executive produced by Darlene Hunt. Parsons serve as an executive producer through his That’s Wonderful Productions banner along with Angie Stephenson of BBC Studios. Bialik is also set to executive produce along with Mackenzie Gabriel-Vaught through their Sad Clown banner. That’s Wonderful’s Eric Norsoph will also be producing.
Carla will be a co-production between Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment. The project is a part of Parsons and Bialik’s overall deals with WBTV. It is expected to debut in Fall 2020.
