/// Chuck Lorre Eyes Drama Development
After all but singlehandedly stocking CBS’s comedy larder, Chuck Lorre is looking to branch out into drama. Lorre, the creator of the CBS hits Two and a Half Men , The Big Bang Theory and Mike and Molly , has re-upped with Warner Bros. Television through 2016. Per terms of his new deal, the 59-year-old Lorre will continue to write and produce comedies while trying his hand at developing one-hour scripted dramas. He also has the option to explore the theatrical side of the business.
