Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is set to star in the upcoming indie dramedy THE EARTH WAS BLUE for producers Double Nickel Entertainment and BCDF Pictures. The film, which is eyeing a Summer 2014 start is now on the hunt for their female lead to star opposite Parsons. The story, which is pitched as a mix between dramedy and rom/com, centers on a disgraced reporter who attempts to win back the public by tracking down the illusive and anonymous author of a book that has changed the world. Based on that brief synopsis we’re assuming Parsons will play the illusive author.
BCDF, who previously released the Josh Radnor’s (How I Met You Mother) “Liberal Arts” and the VOD break out hit “Bacherlorette” have a solid development slate for 2014, with no less than 3 spec buys in 2013, and a mix of indies prepping for a start before years end.
Producers are still on the hunt for a female lead to pair with Parsons, as well as a director to bring to life the script written by Hal Masonberg and Teal Minton.
Parsons, who will next be see in “Wish I Was Here”, is repped by CAA and Gotham/Principal.
