Mr. Media Interview: Bill Prady, The Big Bang Theory, TV sitcom co-creator

By Bob Andelman     Jun 11, 2008 in Entertainment
Bill Prady is having a pretty good year, writers’ strike and all, thanks to the success of “The Big Bang Theory,” the hit CBS sitcom he co-created with Chuck Lorre.
If you haven’t seen “The Big Bang Theory,” it co-stars Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons as a couple of super-nerds named Leonard and Sheldon, an “in” joke for those of us who remember a sitcom master of old, the late Sheldon Leonard. Leonard produced everything from “Make Room for Daddy” with Danny Thomas to “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “The Andy Griffith Show.” He was also a director, a writer, and a frequent guest star, including appearing on an episode of HBO’s “Dream On.”
More about that later.
Sheldon and Leonard, the lead characters in “The Big Bang Theory,” have absolutely nothing in common with their namesake that I can figure, except that he’d probably be proud of the tribute because they are smartly-drawn, literate, and most importantly, damn funny.
