‘The Big Bang Theory’ Contract Battle: Sides Aim For Deals By Sunday

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The ticking clock is adding urgency to the negotiations of new contracts for the five key stars of “The Big Bang Theory,” with sources suggesting that the constituencies are bracing for a long working weekend in the hopes of getting deals in place by Sunday night.

There is speculation that the days lost this week after production was delayed from its scheduled July 30 start have already cost the Warner Bros. TV sitcom one episode from its 24-episode order for season eight. However, others close to the situation insist that five production days can be made up down the road to avoid trimming down to 23 episodes.

CBS is counting on airing back-to-back new episodes of “Big Bang” on Sept. 22 to give a boost to its new 9 p.m. drama “Scorpion.” “Big Bang” will move back to Monday nights temporarily this fall to make room for the addition of eight NFL games on CBS’ Thursday slate. »

What's to Become of 'The Big Bang Theory' Now That There Are Contract Disputes?

12 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The eighth season of "The Big Bang Theory" is supposed to premiere on CBS on Sept. 22, but barring some new wrinkle in the space-time continuum, that seems unlikely to happen.

In fact, the new season was supposed to go into production, beginning with a table read, on July 31, but according to Deadline, the production has been shut down indefinitely.

The reason: Five of the seven-star ensemble cast members are still in salary renegotiations, and they're staying home until those negotiations are resolved.

Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are all seeking salary hikes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the core trio of Parsons, Galecki, and Cuoco all make $325,000 per episode but are seeking up to $1 million each. So: no big bump? No "Big Bang."

These contract negotiations have been a time bomb waiting to go off since September, when the other two stars, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, »

New Big Bang Theory Season 8 Officially Delayed Over Contract Problems,New Details

31 July 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

As previously reported, the main stars of CBS' hit comedy show, "The Big Bang Theory," are very money hungry, so it has led to them not being able to make the July 30th production start date for the upcoming season 8 that was scheduled, causing production to get delayed indefinitely until CBS decides to pay up. If they should decide to do so, it's going to be very expensive. According to TV Line. The main culprits for this delay, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, are reportedly looking to increase their per-episode salaries from north of $300,000 (plus a quarter-of-a-point on the back end) to a possible, whopping $1 million dollars! Then their other costars ,Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, who are currently getting around $125k and $75K per episode, respectively, also are want to get more money. Warner Bros. TV released a new statement regarding this issue. It reads like this: "Due to ongoing contract negotiations, »

‘The Big Bang Theory’ Production Halted As Cast Negotiate Contracts

31 July 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s that dreaded moment for TV executives everywhere – contract negotiations. And this TV season’s negotiation drama has started with a big bang indeed!

The cast of Chuck Lorre smash The Big Bang Theory have missed their original season eight production start date due to the fact that contracts have not been signed by the show’s stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar. While CBS seem to be playing it cool, Warner Bros. TV did release a statement to confirm that production had been pushed back.

The Big Bang Theory is a huge show for Warner Bros. TV, estimated to generate up to $2 billion in revenue. As the show was renewed for three more years back in March, we’re definitely not surprised that negotiations have gone this long.

The Big Bang Theory season eight is still set to return in September, but »

31 July 2014 3:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

CBS

Those waiting for their next 22-episode dose of Sheldon being insane, Penny being a doofus and Leonard being entirely too reasonable might be waiting a little longer. Reports out of La are saying that production has stalled on the upcoming eighth season of The Big Bang Theory, owing to ongoing contract negotiation between the cast and the studio. Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco are among the stars still trying to make a deal over their payment for the next series of the phenomenally popular CBS sitcom, which was due to return on September 22nd.

Allegedly Galecki, Parsons and Cuoco are all seeking sizeable raises in their salary, which have been steadily rising from the $60,000 per episode they were paid in the first three seasons. Right now they’re looking to receive something close to a cool $1 million, as well as more backend money. That amount would put »

Where Does The Big Bang Theory's Salary Dispute Rank Among TV's Biggest Feuds?

30 July 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Big Bang Theory stars are at odds with producers over their contracts and it's delayed the start of Season 8. But this isn't the first time stars have battled their own shows. Stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting are said to asking for "Friends money"—up to $1 million an episode—while costars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are also said to be angling for raises. Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch already signed different deals.

"The Big Bang Theory" Production Delayed

30 July 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Contract talks for CBS hit "The Big Bang Theory" have officially delayed production on the new season of the sitcom which was to begin today.

Actors Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar have not yet reached a new deal with studio Warner Bros. Television and it's unclear just how long production will be delayed as the impasse remains.

The recent three-season renewal of the show, and its place as TV's No. 1 comedy among total viewers for the past several years, gives the cast considerable leverage.

Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco are reportedly seeking up to $1 million per half-hour, along with a cut of the show's back-end - up from $325,000 per episode. Helberg and Nayyar are also seeking hefty raises.

12 highlights from the 'Big Bang Theory' 2014 Comic-Con panel

25 July 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The ongoing contract negotiations with CBS/Wbtv and the core cast of "The Big Bang Theory" loomed over Friday (July 25) morning's San Diego Comic-Con panel, or at least the negotiations loomed if you happened to be obsessed with such things. If you're not, the negotiations were a total non-factor in the spirited and amusing give-and-take between the show's writers, moderator Craig Ferguson and the Comic-Con crowd.  According to a Deadline.com story, question monitors at the panel prevented Deadline from asking about the negotiations, which raises exactly two issues for me: 1) The writers of "The Big Bang Theory," for the most part, could hardly have less to do with negotiations that are going on far, far, far above their paygrade or job description. Even the highest ranking writers on the panel, folks like co-creator Bill Prady and showrunner Steve Molaro, could hardly have less to do with those negotiations and »
