Bazinga! If you thought you might never see the stars of the record-breaking sitcom, The Big Bang Theory together ever again, you couldn't be more wrong. Fox is all set to stage a Big Bang Theory reunion as it has roped in actors Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik aka Sheldon and Amy respectively for an upcoming comedy.
The only difference here is that they won't be seen on-screen together but will be working in different capacities, The comedy called Carla will revolve around Carla (Bialik) as a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against her mother to prove that you cannot have everything you want — and still be happy. That's why she spent the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, Kentucky.
Darlene Hunt will pen the script and exec produce alongside Bialik, Parsons and his husband and producing partner Todd Spiewak, BBC Studios' Angie Stephenson and Hart. The potential series is a co-production between Fox Entertainment and Warner Bros. TV — where Parsons and Bialik are both under overall deals following their longtime relationship with the studio behind Big Bang Theory.
“In pursuing a hand-crafted approach to our scripted development, [Fox Entertainment CEO] Charlie [Collier] 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," said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn. "Carla is an unapologetically big, broad multicam with a strong female point-of-view, pushing the format in a way that will be distinctive. With the A+ creative team, our partners at Warner Bros., led by the inimitable Peter Roth, and BBC Studios, we think we have something truly special here."
The comedy is based on creator Miranda Hart's BBC U.K. original series Miranda.
Nevertheless, the fans just hope they might get to see Parsons and Bialik on-screen in some capacity again.
