Jim Parsons, best known for his role as ‘Sheldon Cooper‘ on CBS’s ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ took to Instagram the other day both to announce that highly-expected sitcom ‘Call Me Kat‘ is premiering on Fox and express that he is satisfied with being the executive producer for the series.
The actor, who recently appeared as ‘Michael’ in ‘The Boys in the Band,’ shared a photo of the cast of the series, and wrote the following message alongside it:
“From watching their work on these first episodes we’ve shot, I feel like I know them well and adore them all. And I think there’s a good chance many of you will feel the same.”
Stating he could not meet about half of this cast in person because of the COVID-19 restrictions, Parsons described watching the first episode of the series, based on the British sitcom ‘Miranda,’ as the “first date,” and continued as follows:
“There’s a chance for a second date already scheduled for this coming Thursday, January 7th, at 9e/8/c (the normal spot for the show).”
Four-time Primetime Emmy Award-winning actor did not skip to thank the member of the crew. He stated that even though he was not able to be on the set due to the concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, the crew did some “truly spectacular work” while wearing masks and shields. Parsons concluded:
“Many of these folks I have never met at all, but a few, like Big Bang director-alums Mark Cendrowski and Anthony Rich, I just haven’t been able to hug, as one would rightfully expect to do, greeting each other as a new chapter opens. Hopefully, sometime in 2021, ALL these greetings will happen!”
Following the post, a great number of followers asked him how he contributed to the show remotely.
As he stated, the series, starring Parsons’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ co-star Mayim Bialik, Cheyenne Jackson, Swoosie Kurtz, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, and Leslie Jordan, premiered on Fox, on January 3.
