Here's something for "all you cool cats and kittens" — no, it's not another season of the ridiculously popular Tiger King from March 2020. This is perhaps a bit more relatable as the British sitcom 'Miranda' is being brought to TV for the US audience in the form of a Fox series titled 'Call Me Kat'. 

From creator Darlene Hunt and based on the original work of Miranda Hart, the show follows "a 39-year-old woman called Kat who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that you can not have everything you want yet still be happy. So she spends the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky."


The relatable narrative comes padded with a bunch of familiar and beloved faces from TV. Here's who stars in the upcoming series:

Mayim Bialik

The lead actor of the upcoming Fox comedy is most popularly known for her role as neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory'. Bialik is also a neuroscientist and author. Her other appearances include a four-year stint as the title character of the NBC sitcom 'Blossom'.

It was, however, playing Fowler that sparked the actress to incredible fame and recognition with four nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and a Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2015 and 2016.


Leslie Jordan

While not much has been disclosed about Jordan's character Phil, the actor and writer is hardly difficult to recognize from his illustrious career in the industry. From roles like Lonnie Garr in 'Hearts Afire' (1993–1995), Beverly Leslie in 'Will & Grace' (2001–2006, 2017–2020) to several characters in the 'American Horror Story' franchise (2011–present), and Sid in 'The Cool Kids' (2018–2019), Jordan is no stranger to comedy.


His most popular onstage performances were in 'Sordid Lives' as Earl "Brother Boy" Ingram, which he reprised on the big screen in the popular cult film of the same name.

Cheyenne Jackson

Another 'American Horror Story' alum joins the cast as Max, which is yet another undisclosed character. Jackson is an actor and singer with credits including leading roles in some of Broadway's musicals and other stage roles, as well as film and television roles, concert singing and music recordings.

The comedy also stars Swoosie Kurtz as Sheila, Kyla Pratt as Randi, Julian Gant as Carter and Vanessa Lachey as Tara Barnett.


'Call Me Kat' premieres on Sunday, January 3, 2021, at 8 pm on Fox.
