The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is developing a series based on Ryan O'Connell's book, I'm Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves, with boyfriend Todd Spiewak through their That's Wonderful Productions. O'Connell's book, which will be published in June (15), centres on the writer's life as a gay man with cerebral palsy. He will serve as writer and executive producer alongside Parsons and Spiewak.
