The Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik are back with a bang! The duo, who fast became everyone’s favourite on-screen couple on the sitcom, have now joined hands for another project and fans cannot hold back their excitement. Carla, a comedy from Big Bang studio Warner Bros is based on Miranda Hart’s BBC series Miranda. The project, starring and executive produced by Bialik and Parsons, just landed at Fox with a series order for fall 2020. The network’s willingness to step up in a big way erases any doubt about its commitment to live-action comedy under CEO Charlie Collier and Entertainment President Michael Thorn.
The show, written by Darlene Hunt shows Carla (Bialik), 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. For this reason, she spends the money her parents had put aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, KY. Hunt executive produces with Bialik via her Sad Clown Productions banner, Parsons and Todd Spiewak via That’s Wonderful Productions, Angie Stephenson for BBC Studios and the original series’ creator and star Miranda Hart. That’s Wonderful’s Eric Norsoph and Sad Clown’s Mackenzie Gabriel-Vaught serve as producers.
The project hails from That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions and BBC Studios in association with Warner Bros. “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 President 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.” The Big Bang reunion is sure to delight fans of the hit comedy.
