Johnny Galecki from Big Bang Theory to star in esports comedy for NBC

The Squad could be the gamer version of NBC's The Big Bang Theory, and that's OK with me

NBC has announced a new esports-focused comedy securing a gigantic TV star in Johnny Galecki, who played Leonard Hofstadter in the super-popular and even more successful The Big Bang Theory.

The new show is called 'The Squad' and centers around a group of friends who love esports, with The Hollywood Reporter describing the series: "The Squad revolves around a new group of friends (and sometimes enemies) who find companionship and common ground in their mutual love of esports. The potential series explores what it means to finally find 'your tribe' after years of feeling like an outsider".

Anthony Del Broccolo is writing The Squad, having worked on The Big Bang Theory as a producer and writer for the series. There's no other details on the series other than Warner Bros. TV producing the show for NBC, with WBTV producing The Big Bang Theory for CBS so it is kinda still in the family with some of the stars, writers, and companies connected to The Big Bang Theory.

The Big Bang Theory finished in May 2019 with its 12th season, making it the longest-running multi-camera comedy in history.
