The Big Bang Theory alums Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons are teaming up for a new Fox series to premiere in the 2020 TV season.
The Big Bang Theory may be over, but for Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons, their odyssey through the world of TV has just begun.
Mayim and Parsons are set to team up on a new show for FOX, Carla, that is slated to premiere in the fall of 2020. According to Entertainment Weekly, Bialik will play the title character, a 39-year-old woman who battles it out against society and her mother, the latter of whom is still peeved at Carla for spending her wedding money to open a cafe in Louisville, Kentucky.
There is a common theme to Carla, and it’s that you can be happy while not having everything you want out of life, which is pretty good motivation. You won’t see Parsons in the new series, but he will be on as an executive producer of the comedy, a role that he’ll share with Bialik.
Fox is branding Carla as an “unapologetically bog, broad multi-cam with a strong female point of view,” and it will be interesting to see how the final product will shake out.
While Bialik is focused on Carla, Parsons is currently producing the Netflix film The Boys in the Band, which will be released next year. Carla is part of a multifaceted deal that Bialik signed with Warner Bros. TV Group after the end of The Big Bang Theory. She earned four Emmy nominations and a SAG Award for her portrayal as Amy on the iconic sitcom. Likely, Carla will be produced through her production company, Sad Clown Productions, which was part of the deal with Warner Bros.
