It has been revealed that the executives over at CBS have decided to give the green light to a pilot episode of a spin-off show from The Big Bang Theory. The show will see Kaley Cuoco in the lead role, as the show will centre around her character Penny.
The new The Big Bang Theory spin-off will show Penny in the build up to leaving home and going in search of her acting dreams. It will also see Penny on some of her acting sets, as well as going to auditions, which will see some casting directors asking weird things of her.
CBS have given the pilot episode the go ahead, and it is currently being developed by The Big Bang Theory creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. While Kaley Cuoco will be the star of the spin-off, it is expected that we will see some cameo appearances from the rest of The Big Bang Theory regulars.
With the pilot episode almost good to go, it is expected that the filming for the show will begin in the coming weeks. It is also believed that it will follow what The Vampire Diaries are doing with their spin-off and have the pilot air as an actual episode of The Big Bang Theory.
