Two of the stars of CBS’ hit comedy series, “Big Bang Theory,” will be working together again. Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik are going to be behind the new comedy series “Carla,” which is set to air in the fall of FOX in 2020.
Parsons and Bialik will serve as executive producers for “Carla” but Bialik will also be working in front of the camera as the star of the series. The show is based on the British comedy “Miranda.”
The two stars have become a great comedy team since working on “Big Bang Theory,” which ran for 12 seasons. Bialik joined this show in the third season as a guest but became a series regular by the fourth season.
“Carla” is show about “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,” which “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 boss of 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.”
Apart from FOX, Warner Bros Television will also be producing “Carla.”
The news comes as Warner Media just announced that all 12 seasons of “Big Bang Theory” will be made available in its upcoming streaming service, HBO MAX, when it is ready to launch in Spring 2020. HBO Max’s deal is allegedly valued at $600 million.
