‘The Big Bang Theory’s’ Mayim Bialik and Jim Parson’s are set to re-team on new Fox series ‘Carla’, a series based on the BBC’s UK series ‘Miranda’.
Bialik will take the lead as Carla, 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. We can only assume there will be no ‘Fun With Flags’ in this one.
Parson’s and Bialik will executive produce on the series with Darlene Hunt who will also pen the series. Angie Stephenson of BBC Studios will also executive produce along with Miranda Hart – who created the UK show. The series will be a co-production between Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment.
The BBC’s ‘Miranda’ was a British television sitcom written by and starring comedian Miranda Hart. Developed from Hart’s semi-autobiographical BBC Radio 2 comedy ‘Miranda Hart’s Joke Shop’, the comedy series revolves around socially inept Miranda, who frequently finds herself in awkward situations. The show featured Sarah Hadland, Tom Ellis, Patricia Hodge, Sally Phillips, James Holmes and Bo Poraj. The series ran for three seasons.
The news of the show comes hot on the hell’s of the announcement that all 12 seasons of ‘Big Bang Theory’ will stream exclusively on the WarnerMedia streaming service, HBO Max when it launches next spring.
‘Carla is set to launch in the autumn of 2020.
