Big Bang Theory' Start of Production Delayed Amid Contract Dispute

According to Variety.com, Warner Bros. is delaying the start of production on CBS' blockbuster sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" due to contract disputes.

The "Big Bang" actors were set to return from their summer hiatus today for a table reading of the first episode for the show's eighth season. But with no new deals in place with the show's core trio, plus Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, Warners had little choice but to table the table reading rather than add to the tension between studio and thesps.

"Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on 'The Big Bang Theory' - which was originally scheduled to begin today - has been postponed," WBTV said in a statement.

The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the show along with Steven Molaro. The show is primarily centered on five characters living in Pasadena, California: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon's equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny's social skills and common sense.
