In a rich deal, indie studio Warner Bros. TV has inked a syndication deal with ViacomCBS for Big Bang spinoff prequel Young Sheldon. Under the multiple-year deal, the 1990s-set single-camera comedy from Chuck Lorre will join ViacomCBS-owned Nick at Nite’s syndication lineup in November.
Clancy Collins-White and Adrienne Turner will lead drama and comedy development, and Maddy Horne and Odetta Watkins will oversee the studio’s current efforts under new WBTV heads Susan Rovner and Brett Paul.
It is not certain that CBS’s hit comedy Two and a Half Men will return next season, but the show’s studio, Warner Brothers, confirmed Thursday that it was trying to bring the show back without its original star, Charlie Sheen.
Charlie Sheen made another bizarre public statement this morning, this time on live radio. The Two and a Half Men star, who is undergoing rehab treatment at home, called into the Dan Patrick Show to complain that CBS and Men producer Warner Bros. TV would not allow him to return to work despite, according to him, being ready to do so.
