'The Big Bang Theory' Delays Production Amid Contract Dispute

Production on the next season of 'The Big Bang Theory' has been delayed because CBS is still in the midst of contract negotiations with the cast.

"Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on The Big Bang Theory - which was originally scheduled to begin today has been postponed," says Warner Brothers Television studio, which makes television's most popular comedy says.

The statement was necessary because the first table read of the season was scheduled to take place on Wednesday.

The CBS series is heading into its eighth season. However, the studio is still trying to negotiate the salaries for stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco (photosKaley Cuoco photos), Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar.

Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco, who made $325,000 per episode, are seeking up to $1 million per episode with a cut of the show's back-end earnings.

The new season for 'The Big Bang Theory' is currently set to premiere on September 22.
