Chuck Lorre

Chuck Lorre is an American television producer, writer and composer best known for creating the hit shows Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.

Lorre's earliest writing credits include episodes of animated shows Pole Position and Heathcliff and the Catilac Cats, which he was also credited with developing for TV. Lorre went on to write episodes of the sitcoms Muppet Babies, Charles in Charge, My Two Dads, and Roseanne.

The first sitcom Chuck Lorre created was the short-lived Frannie's Turn, starring Miriam Margolyes and Tomas Milian. His second show, Grace Under Fire, starring Brett Butler, ran for five seasons. Lorre then created Cybill, starring Cybill Shepherd, which ran for four seasons and won Christine Baranski a Primetime Emmy award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy.

In the late '90s, Lorre co-created Dharma & Greg with Dottie Dartland. The show, which starred Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson, ran for five years. Jenna Elfman won a Golden Globe award for her performance as Dharma. Lorre's biggest show to date came in 2003 when he co-created Two and a Half Men with Lee Aronsohn. The show, which originally starred Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer, quickly became the highest rated sitcom on TV.

The next show Lorre developed was The Big Bang Theory, co-created with Bill Prady, which premiered in 2007. Within a few seasons, the show eclipsed Two and a Half Men to become the country's most watched sitcom. Jim Parsons has won three Primetime Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe award for his role as Sheldon Cooper.

In 2010, Chuck Lorre's production company produced Mike & Molly, created by Mark Roberts and starring Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy, which ran for six years. With Gemma Baker and Eddie Gorodetsky, Chuck Lorre co-created the 2013 sitcom Mom, starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney, which is now in its fifth season.

In 2017, Chuck Lorre co-created Young Sheldon with The Big Bang Theory executive producer Steven Molaro. Lorre is also behind two new sitcoms for Netflix: Disjointed, co-created with David Javerbaum and starring Kathy Bates, and The Kominsky Method, starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin.

An accomplished guitarist and songwriter, Lorre wrote Debbie Harry's 1986 hit single French Kissin' in the USA, and co-wrote the soundtrack to the 1987 TV series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Dennis Challen Brown.

 Chuck Lorre has written 54 episodes of Young Sheldon.
