When it was announced that there would be a spinoff of The Big Bang Theory, most people assumed it would look and feel like the original — specifically, a traditional four-camera sitcom shot in front of a live studio audience. After all, that’s the way creator/writer/producer Chuck Lorre has shot all of his shows, so why would Young Sheldon be different? Well, as it turns out, it is different. It’s a one-camera comedy with no studio audience, and Lorre explained to us the rationale behind his decision to shoot Young Sheldon differently. (Click on the media bar below to hear Chuck Lorre)
Young Sheldon follows The Big Bang Theory, Thursday nights at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
