Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik to work together on new comedy show
The comedy is expected to debut in Fall 2020
Post their hit-show The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik are teaming up for a new comedy at Fox called Carla. Parsons and Bialik are both executive producing the project, which Bialik will also star in.
According to the synopsis, Bialik will play the title character, Carla, a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against society. Later, she ends up spending the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, Kentucky.
"Carla is an unapologetically big, broad, strong female point-of-view show, pushing the format in a way that will be distinctive," says Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, Fox Entertainment. "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," he adds.
The comedy will be half-hour long and is based on the BBC UK series, Miranda.
Carla is expected to debut in Fall 2020.
