The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik are reuniting on a new show, but this time only one of them will be appearing in front of the camera.

Parsons and Bialik, who played Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit sitcom respectively, are teaming up to executive-produce a new comedy, inspired by Miranda Hart's BBC series Miranda.

Titled Carla, the show follows a 39-year-old woman of the same name (Bialik) who is struggling to prove to her mother that you can't have everything you want in life and still be happy. That's why she uses the money her parents set aside for her wedding to instead open a cat cafe.

The new series has just been ordered by Fox and is set to air on the network in autumn 2020.

On the commissioning of the show, Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn told Deadline: "In pursuing a hand-crafted approach to our scripted development, Charlie [Collier, Fox Entertainment CEO] and I knew Carla, written by Darlene Hunt, was a project with great potential that could become the centrepiece of our comedy slate.

"And Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik coming to Fox Entertainment is obviously an enormous part of that equation.

"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."
