The creator and producer of some of the most successful sitcoms in TV history will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Deadline.com reports that Chuck Lorre will receive the honor April 18 at the NAB Show Television Luncheon in Las Vegas.
Lorre has been behind a long string of hits, including “The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Cybill,” “Grace Under Fire,” “Roseanne” and “Mike & Molly.”
National Association of Broadcasters Executive Vice President of Television Marcellus Alexander said: “An artist in the prime of his career, Chuck Lorre is a legendary television writer and producer. His biting wit and memorable characters have become a part of our culture and defined an era of scripted comedies for Warner Bros. Television and CBS — comedies that remind us, on a weekly basis, of the scale and power of broadcast television.”
