The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is developing a gay sitcom for NBC

NBC are developing a multi-camera sitcom with The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons.

The Inn Crowd will centre on a gay couple and their resort in a rural town, and how its success divides the residents. It is based on Tony Horwitz’s 1999 New Yorker article.

According to Deadline, Parsons will executive produce alongside Todd Spiewak and David Holden, who will pen the script.

Last month, it was revealed that The Big Bang Theory will end after its 12th season, because Parsons – who plays lead character Sheldon Cooper – is “ready to walk away”.

On his Instagram account, the American actor said it’s impossible to “accept that this a picture of the first of the final 24 episodes we will shoot for The Big Bang Theory.”

“I will miss all of you and all of this more than I can say and more than I can know at this time.”

Since the show’s debut, Parsons has received universal acclaim for his role as Sheldon Cooper, winning a Golden Globe and four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series – a record he currently ties with Michael J. Fox, Kelsey Grammar and Carroll O’Connor.

The show’s twelfth – and final – season will premiere on CBS at 24 September.
