The star of the popular Big Bang Theory, Simon Helberg, has signed on to new TV comedy series in development at CBS, according to Variety. And this time it has nothing to do with physics, or engineering.
You don’t have to worry about Howard’s future in Big Bang Theory, because Simone will produce the new comedy, rather than starring in it.
