Esports Sitcom ‘The Squad’ From Johnny Galecki in Development at NBC

“Big Bang Theory” alum Anthony Del Broccolo to write the multi-camera comedy

NBC has put into development a new multi-camera comedy from executive producer Johnny Galecki and “The Big Bang Theory” alum Anthony Del Broccolo.

Titled “The Squad,” the sitcom centers on a new group of friends (and sometimes enemies) who find companionship and common ground in their mutual love of competitive eSports.

Del Broccolo, whose previous credits include Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” “Drake & Josh” and “All That,” will write and executive produce the project, which has received a script development deal at the network.

Galecki will executive produce alongside Holly Brown of his Alcide Bava Productions banner. Alcide Bava’s Cory Wood will serve as a producer. Warner Bros. Television, where Alcide Bava has a pod deal, is the studio.

On-screen, Galecki wrapped his 10-season run as physicist Leonard Hofstadter on CBS’s hit “The Big Bang Theory” this spring. He has also recently reprised his “Roseanne” character on ABC’s The Conners.”
