Dr Sheldon Cooper might be getting his fondest wish soon — being the star of his own show.
American TV executives are working on a spin-off of The Big Bang Theory, starring Sheldon Cooper.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the creators of the hit comedy series, now in its 10th and possibly final season, are looking at doing a prequel to the show with a younger Sheldon.
Actor Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, will be the executive producer of the show which will feature a young nerdy Sheldon similar to the Malcolm In The Middle series.
None of the other Big Bang Theory cast will be part of the new show and for now the exact plot is still being worked out.
