Amy and Sheldon are back! Kind of. During Fox's new season announcements on Monday, the network revealed that it has officially picked up a new comedy series, Call Me Kat, from Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons, who starred as Amy Farrah Fowler and Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory.
Bialik will executive produce the series as well as play the lead, Kat, a 39-year-old woman struggling with society and her own mother to prove you cannot have everything you want and still be happy. That's why she chooses to spend the money her parents set aside for her wedding on opening a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky. Sounds like comedy gold to us!
Jim Parsons and his producing partner and husband Todd Spiewak have signed on to executive produce. While there's no indication yet that Parsons will make an appearance on the new series, we're still going to keep our fingers crossed. Other confirmed cast members for Call Me Kat include Leslie Jordan, Swoozie Kurtz, and Kyla Pratt.
The Big Bang Theory ended its 12-season run on CBS last year as television's most-watched comedy, so Fox's decision to lock in Parsons and Bialik for a new series seems like a smart move!
