Comic-Con 2008: CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” Panel July 25, 2008 11:13 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in CBS, Comic-Con, Comic-Con 2008, News, Television, The Big Bang Theory.

At the panel for the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory, Chuck Lorre, co-creator Bill Prady and the entire cast (Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar) were in attendance.  Here are the highlights courtesy TV Squad:

  • Lorre says that he never intended to make a show about nerds and geeks, but that his main intention was to air a show about remarkable people.
  • All the backgrounds of the major characters will be explored more fully in the upcoming season.
  • There will be some form of resolution in the Leonard and Penny situation that took place at the end of the first season.
  • Sara Gilbert will be returning for several episodes.
  • The cast said that they all receive complaints if they get something scientifically wrong, however they have a consultant that fact checks for them.
  • The characters on the show are all based on people Bill used to work with when he was a computer programmer.
  • There was a previous pilot for the show created for CBS, but according to Lorne “it sucked.” Because of the strong chemistry between Johnny and Jim, CBS gave them blessings for a re-shoot.

More from the panel, including what if anything makes the cast and crew a geek, can be read at TV Squad.
