The Big Bang Theory actor will be reuniting in a collaboration with The Writer of the Big Bang Theory Anthony Del Broccolo. The pair will be working on a brand new Sit-com based on the world of eSports. With news the show has been given a script order at NBC, the former Leonard actor will take the role as executive Producer on the show.
Similar to The Big Bang Theory, The Squad will focus on a new group of friends who bond over mutual interests.
However, duo will be swapping Comic books and Science to their mutual love of video game based sporting competitions.
Fans of The Big Bang Theory will remember the boys were never huge fans of sports so it seems things will be a little different to Johnny’s twelve year stint as Leonard.
However, the show will see the group explore what it means to finally find “your tribe” after years of feeling like an outsider.
The world of esports has rapidly expanded in recent years with eye-watering sums of money involved.
According to Variety, NBC recently picked up the show, for what is set to be a multi-camera comedy about the virtual world.
The Leonard actor will executive produce alongside Holly Brown of his Alcide Bava Productions banner.
With the Sitcom in it’s early stages, show runners are staying tight-lipped on the finer details of the plot.
Meanwhile, Kaley Cuoco, who played his former on-screen wife Penny Hofstadter is currently working on the TV adaptation of The Flight Attendant.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight she revealed: “I found this book two-and-a-half years ago, and I wanted to make it, and I thought the material was great.
“I had an instinct about it,” she continued.
“I think it’s really important to start putting our own stamps on things, especially as women, and having our own voice.
“And I like being the boss. That’s it. That’s the bottom line.”
Her role marks a huge contrast to her twelve-year stint as Penny Hofstadter.
Kaley will be starring as Flight attendant Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Brown, who wakes up in a Dubai hotel face-to-face with a dead body with no recollection of how it got there.
However instead of calling the police, she boards a plain with her fellow flight attendants, fearing she could be the one who committed the crime.
The Big Bang Theory season 12 is available on CBS and All4.
