The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik’s latest show Call Me Kat has found itself a new showrunner with a very impressive resume.
Alissa Neubauer will lead the Fox comedy’s second season, following the departure of Darlene Hunt, The Wrap reports.
Neubauer previously worked on Two and a Half Men where she eventually became co-producer. She most recently worked on Mom where also served as co-executive producer.
Inspired by BBC sitcom Miranda, which starred Miranda Hart, Lucifer’s Tom Ellis and Sarah Hadland, Call Me Kat sees the titular character quit her job as a University of Louisville lecturer and spend the money her parents had set aside for her wedding to open a cat café.
Will her owning her own business convince them she doesn’t need a man to lead a fulfilling life?
Julian Gant (Real Steel), Swoosie Kurtz (Pushing Daisies), Kyla Pratt (Doctor Dolittle), Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story) and Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) appear opposite Bialik, who produces with her former co-star Jim Parsons.
The show was renewed last month for a second season by Fox with the network’s president of entertainment Michael Thorn making the announcement.
“We are excited to renew Call Me Kat and have Mayim, Cheyenne, Swoosie, Leslie, Kyla and Julian return for their second season together. They share a winning chemistry that we, and viewers, adore,” he said.
“On behalf of everyone here at Fox, congratulations to this incredible cast and our terrific partners at Warner Bros on delivering this season’s No. 1 new comedy.”
