Comedy / TV-Series (2021)
The tv-series starring Mayim Bialik, and executive-produced by Bialik, producer Jim Parsons and Darlene Hunt, will have a special series premiere Sunday, January 3, 2021. The series then makes its time period premiere Thursday, January 7.
Based on the BBC UK original series “Miranda”, CALL ME KAT stars Bialik as a woman who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that she can still live a happy and fulfilling life despite still being single at 39. Which is why she recently spent her entire savings to open a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky. It was expected of KAT (Bialik) to be married with kids by now, but for many reasons, she’s still single – and totally fine with it. Of course, Kat’s mother, SHEILA (Swoosie Kurtz), views her daughter’s single-hood as her own personal failure, but Kat remains determined to live a fulfilling life, and charts her own course to happiness.
Working alongside Kat at the café are RANDI (Kyla Pratt), a confident millennial and self-proclaimed “non” cat person; and PHIL (Leslie Jordan), who recently broke up with his longtime partner. Although Kat celebrates her independence, her single-forever plans may begin to veer off-course, when her former crush and good friend, MAX (Cheyenne Jackson), returns to town and takes a job as a bartender at the piano bar across the street, working with his friend, CARTER (Julian Gant).
