The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki has won a pilot order for a comedy which he is executive producing alongside former ABC entertainment chief Stephen McPherson and writer Ricky Blitt.

The show, commissioned by Fox, called Here’s Your Damn Family, is a multi-camera comedy which tells the story of a woman who has been single for twenty year but all of a sudden announces to her thirty-something son that she is married and her new husband and three teenage children are moving in.

The script was written by Blitt who teams up again with Galecki after their 2002 project, Becoming Glen.

The Big Bang Theory continues to draw huge audience around the world and can be seen here on RTÉ Two on Thursday nights at 7.30pm
