Former Big Bang Theory stars Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons are behind a US adaptation of British sitcom Miranda.
Carla, as it will be known Stateside, sees Bialik star as a woman who uses the money her parents set aside for her wedding to instead open a cat cafe, in Louisville, Kentucky.
The show, which has been given a series commitment, will be executive produced by Bialik and Parsons. The Big C creator Darlene Hunt will write and also executive produce.
“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,” said FOX president of entertainment Michael Thorn. “We think we have something truly special here.”
Miranda, starring Miranda Hart, ran from 2009 – 2013 and is planning a 10th anniversary special in November.
