"Comedy" producer Chuck Lorre has landed his first sale after signing a new four-year deal with Warner Bros. Television in September. Lorre, the show runner of CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory,' 'Two and a Half Men,' and 'Mike & Molly,' has sold a new multi-camera comedy that focuses on a single mother to CBS. If you people keep watching his programs, he will never go away. Please stop.
The show, 'Mom,' is co-written by Lorre and 'Two and a Half Men' executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker. It will show the struggles a recently sober single mother goes through trying to get her affairs in order in Napa Valley.
Lorre has a long history of working with Gorodetsky, beginning with 'Dharma & Greg' and continuing on to the previously mentioned CBS series.
The two men will executive produce the project for Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. Television, while Baker will produce. The show has received a pilot production order from CBS.
Under the terms of Lorre’s new deal, he will continue creating TV programs, as well as the possibility of big screen fare. He also is looking into creating dramatic programing.
I cannot stand any of his series, with the caveat that I have not seen ‘Mike & Molly.’ ‘Two and a Half Men’ is one of the least enjoyable TV experiences I have ever had to sit through, though, so I can rest easy without any more Lorre in my life.
