Kyla Pratt is returning to the small screen. Pratt has joined the cast of Fox’s multi-camera straight-to-series comedy Call Me Kat.
She will co-star opposite of Big Bang Theory alum Mayim Bialik. She also joins Swoosie Kurtz on the project.
According to Deadline, the series, based on Miranda Hart’s BBC series Miranda, centers around Bialik’s character Kat. “[Kat] is a 39-year-old woman who struggles every day against society and her mother Sheila (Kurtz) to prove that you CANNOT have everything you want — and still be happy. Which is why she spent the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a Cat Café in Louisville, KY.”
Pratt will play Randi, a hip, confident millennial who was named Louisville’s top barista four years in a row. Randi works at the café despite having no interest in cats. As someone who juggles multiple suitors, Randi encourages Kat to adopt a new approach to dating.
Pratt is most known for starring in One on One and voicing Penny Proud on Disney Channel’s hit series The Proud Family. She also starred in the Dr. Dolittle franchise.
Last pilot season Pratt was attached to Fox’s Patty’s Auto, but it didn’t move forward. So this straight-to-series order is a definite win for the actress.
Call Me Kat is written by Darlene Hunt. Hunt executive produces alongside Bialik, Hart, Jim Parsons, Todd Spiewak and Angie Stephenson.
