Jim Parsons Producing a Multi-Cam Family Comedy at CBS


Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is developing a new comedy at CBS. According to Deadline, the network is developing an untitled multi-cam comedy co-executive produced by Parsons based on the life of Alyssa Shelasky, author of the 2012 book Apron Anxiety: My Messy Affairs In and Out of the Kitchen. It will follow “an optimistic and independent woman nearing 40 with an eccentric and supportive family (all of whom live in her building). She decides to become a single mother and in the process learns that sometimes raising a child takes a village.” Writer/actor Marisa Coughlan will write and co-executive produce with Parsons.
