The Big Bang Theory‘s universe is officially entering a younger, dense state.
Parsons will narrate the offshoot and also serve as an EP, along with Big Bang co-creator Chuck Lorre, current showrunner Steve Molaro and Todd Spiewak.
The cast also includes Lance Barber (The Comeback), Raegan Revord (Modern Family) and Montana Jordan. Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau is set to direct the premiere.
The series order comes as CBS and Warner Bros. are hammering out a new two-year renewal deal for The Big Bang Theory, a process reportedly being stymied by a contract stalemate involving supporting players Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch. Last week, CBS CEO Les Moonves sounded an upbeat note during an investor gathering, declaring that a renewal agreement was “on the two yard line.”
