Alissa Neubauer has been named executive producer and showrunner on Fox comedy Call Me Kat. Mayim Bialik stars, and executive produces alongside Jim Parsons. 

Season two returns in the mid season next year. 

Neubauer was script coordinator on CBS comedy Two and a Half Men, then co-producer. She was on staff for CBS comedy Mom for all eight seasons, reaching co-executive producer. 

On Call Me Kat, Bialik plays a woman who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that she can 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.
