Former The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik is set to star in a new Fox comedy set in Louisville, and Jim Parsons will executive produce the show. Parsons and Bialik played Sheldon Cooper and Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory from 2010-2019.
Now, Bialik is set to play the title character in “Carla,” a show based off the successful BBC show Miranda.
“Carla (Bialik) is 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,” a synopsis of the show reads, according to Deadline. “Which is why she spent the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a cat café in Louisville, KY.”

Well, friends. Here's what I've been doing and brewing…my friend and co-star, @therealjimparsons, and I are working together again!!! He and I are joining to executive produce a show for me to star in based on the BBC show "Miranda." It's called "Carla" and it's been an incredibly windy road to get here. SO worth it. We could not be more excited to work together and bring you this show which features SO MANY CATS!!!! ? Here's us at one of our pitches, uncannily and totally coincidentally dressed like salt and pepper shakers. Link in my bio for all the exciting details!! #togetheragain #shamy #carla #cats @foxtv
The show is part of Fox’s fall 2020 lineup. What aspects of Louisville do you hope the show includes? Also, what on earth is a cat cafe?
