The cast of the utmost famous sitcom The Big Bang Theory boycotted the production house last week as their pay-rise demand was not met. The most watched American TV show renewed the contract to three more seasons in this year.
Production of the show came to a standstill when Jim Parsons, Kunal Nayyar, Simon Helberg and Kaley Cuoco refused to show on the set because of no hike in their wages.
Sheldon Cooper, Howard, Penny, Raj were to begin rehearsing the script very soon for the eighth season next month.
Warner Bros Television issued an unequivocal statement saying” There are contract negotiations due to which the production of the show has been delayed and further postponed.”
According to sources, the cast is known to quarrel with WBTV for a salary hike since September last year.
Recommissioning the show which is due in 2017, has been an impetus to the actors’ whims.
Parsons, 3 Grammy and Golden Globe recipient, Galecki and Cuoco have quoted a hike from $325,000 to $1 million per episode along with Helberg and Nayyar.
BBT has 20 million viewers currently and the pay hike, if met would make stars ‘highest paid’ on Television.
Chuck Lorre, the creator of the show says he will favour the actors to work it out. He says ‘Nobody deserves the hike more than my crazy cast. Fans needn’t worry, it will all be sorted out.”
The Big Bang Theory’s would be out with its new season by September third week in the US.
No news of dealying the airdate has been recorded as of now.
