Call Me Kat is coming soon to FOX, and the series has now cast its male lead. Cheyenne Jackson is joining Mayim Bialik in the sitcom. The series is a remake of a British series titled Miranda. Tom Ellis played the male lead in that series.
In the FOX series, Bialik will play a woman “who struggles every day against society and her mother Sheila (Swoosie Kurtz) to prove that you CANNOT have everything you want — and still be happy.”
She decides to open a cat cafe in Kentucky, and Jackson will play her love interest. Deadline revealed the following about his role:
“Jackson will play Kat’s (Bialik) high school crush, Max, who recently returned from teaching English overseas and now works as a bartender across the street from the cat café. He’s getting over a long-term relationship with an ex that Kat imagines to be the most beautiful woman in the world — but Max values personality and humor over physical attractiveness.”
